"I know that the United States is concerned about the ongoing situation there," state department spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters at her daily news conference.

She was responding to questions on India China border row in Sikkim which has carried on for more than a month now.

"We believe that both parties, both sides should work together to try to come up with some better sort of arrangement for peace," Nauert said.

China and India have been engaged in a standoff in the Dokalam area in the Sikkim sector, where Indian troops stopped road construction by Chinese soldiers on 16 June.

Doka La is the Indian name for the region which Bhutan recognises as Dokalam, while China claims it as part of its Donglang region.

Of the 3,488-km-long India-China border from Jammu and Kashmir to Arunachal Pradesh, a 220-km section falls in Sikkim.
