It's being addressed through the established mechanism," External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee told a private news channel. However, he agreed to the fact that the infrastructure development on the Chinese side of the border is "much superior to that on our side". "Their infrastructure in terms of road, electricity and availability of other facilities is much superior to that on our side. It is a known fact. That is why we have decided that we should also build up the roads and other types of infrastructure facilities," he said.
