Guwahati: The third round of Assam-Mizoram border talks, which was scheduled to be held on November 4, is likely to be postponed.
Sources in the Assam State Secretariat told Northeast News that following a request by the Mizoram government, the bilateral talks, which was scheduled to be held on Friday in Guwahati, is likely to be postponed.
The Mizoram government had requested the Assam government to defer the border talks to either November 9 or November 11 in view of President Droupadi Murmu’s visit.
President Droupadi Murmu will arrive in Aizawl on Thursday to attend the convocation of Mizoram University (MZU) and inaugurate various projects.
The president will also address the Mizoram Assembly on Friday before leaving for New Delhi.
The new date of the third round of Assam-Mizoram border talks has not been finalized as yet.
Three Mizoram districts – Aizawl, Kolasib and Mamit – share a 164.6 km long border with Cachar, Karimganj and Hailakandi districts of Assam.
