Apart from both the Chief Ministers, regional committees were also present in the meeting.
Taking to the micro-blogging site Twitter, Assam's Chief Minister said that the soon-to-be-signed draft agreement, between the two states, was deliberated in detail.
''HCM Dr @himantabiswa chaired a meeting today with members of all 12 Assam Regional Committees formed under the Namsai Declaration on Assam - Arunachal Pradesh Boundary Issues. The soon to be signed draft agreement, between the two states, was deliberated in detail,'' he had tweeted.
The Assam Government has formed regional committees for talks with Arunachal Pradesh over the inter-state boundary issues with the neighbouring state and in this regard, several rounds of talks between the Regional committees have been held in recent times.
After the Namsai declaration signed by Assam Chief Minister and Khandu last year, the regional committee jointly visited the area for the first time.
