YANGON - Myanmar and India have vowed to sort out their differences amicably over a border area that remains to be demarcated, local media reported Wednesday.

India suspended construction of an integrated check post (ICP) in Bamaw valley on January 2, Myanmar Foreign Ministry was quoted by the New Light of Myanmar as saying.

Teams from both sides carried out land survey in the area Monday, the report added.

Last year, Myanmar objected India's construction of the so called ICP near the border pillar-78.

Myanmar signed a demarcation agreement with India in March 1967. However, due to differences over the location of border pillars in the valley, several border marks have not yet been established, reports said.
