外文标题：India may build airport at Tawang, near China border
BEIJING: Minister of state for external affairs V K Singh on Friday said India was hopeful of building an airport in Tawang while the work on another airport at Pashighat in Arunachal Pradesh was underway.
"But there is a problem with land availability there (in Tawang)," Singh, who is also in charge of the northeast affairs, told Indian journalists here.
印度外交部长V K Singh周五表示，印度希望在达旺建一座机场，而阿邦Pashighat的另一座机场在建设中。
"The land acquisition problem for the airport in Itanagar, Arunachal's capital, has just been sorted out." Singh added the government is planning airfields in Arunachal Pradesh for smaller aircraft.
Singh said the government plans to create a separate company in collaboration with the Indian Airlines to operate small aircraft in the northeast.
He added new highways are being planned as part of the efforts initiated for major infrastructure development in the region. The railway budget for the region has been increased by 58%.
The visiting Indian minister's statement in Beijing is significant as China claims Arunachal Pradesh as its own.
