Expressing concern over the situation prevailing along the India-border, a top US lawmaker on Friday said that Beijing should work with its neighbours to peacefully resolve disputes and respect law.

"I'm concerned by increasing hostilities along the India-border and urge both countries to use its longstanding diplomatic mechanisms to de-escalate the situation," Indian-American Congressman Ami Bera said.

Increasing military presence on either side of the Line of Actual Control is counterproductive and unhelpful, he said in a tweet.

"I continue to be concerned about China's provocative moves on its periphery -- from its actions in the South Sea to the Line of Actual Control," he added.

"China should work with its neighbours to peacefully resolve these disputes and respect law," Bera said.

The Indian Army and the Chinese People's Liberation Army(PLA) have been locked in a tense standoff in multiple areas along the LAC in eastern Ladakh since early May. Shots were fired across the LAC on Monday for the first time in 45 years with the two sides accusing each other of firing in the air.
