China will work with India to maintain peace and stability in their joint border areas until border disputes are finally settled, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu reaffirmed in Beijing Tuesday.

Jiang's remark came in response to a question concerning an Indian media report Chinese armies had recently crossed the border into India.

"China's position on the Sino-Indian border issue is consistent and clear," Jiang told a regular news briefing.

She said China and India are negotiating to resolve their border disputes.

China and India have reached a consensus to work together to maintain peace and stability in border areas until the disputes are finally settled.

Jiang stressed Chinese border patrols have always abided by the rules and regulations of the consensus.
