Assam/Aizawl, Oct 23 (TIWN) The fortnight long Assam-Mizoram border issue seemed to be resolved on Thursday after the movement of over 300 Mizoram bound essential goods laden vehicles and the start of the process of withdrawing forces from Assam's territory, a top official said.

Southern Assam Range Deputy Inspector General of Police Dilip Kumar Dey said that more than 300 Mizoram bound goods laden vehicles, mostly trucks, started moving for their destination in the neighbouring state. "The Mizoram government has assured to gradually withdraw their forces from the bordering areas inside Assam territory. The situation along Mizoram's border with southern Assam is quite normal," Dey told IANS over phone.

Union Home Ministry's Joint Secretary (North East), Satyendra Kumar Garg, the Home Secretaries of Assam and Mizoram along with top officials of the two states held a series of meetings on Wednesday. Both sides agreed to maintain the status quo for resolving their border problem and hold regular talks to prevent any untoward incident.
