BEIJING, Feb 27 — A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman on Saturday asked India to work with China to maintain peace and stability in the border areas.

Spokesman Hong Lei made the remarks when asked to comment on a news report that Indian officials are participating in activities organized by the so-called "Arunachal Pradesh" region.

The report said the officials pledged to guarantee the "safety" of the strategically important region.

Hong said China's stance on Sino-Indian border issues, including disputes regarding the eastern section, had been consistent and clear-cut.

China advocates seeking a fair and rational solution through equal and friendly negotiations, the spokesman said.

He also called on India to refrain from taking any action that could complicate the issue. (PNA/NNN-XINHUA)
