China reassures India about Brahmaputra dam

India has conveyed its concern to China over its reported plans to build dam on the Brahmaputra River.

India has said that such a project may have significant impact on the socio-economic condition of people living downstream and has expressed hope that China won't undertake this project or divert waters.

The Chinese side has, however, categorically denied that there's any plan to build such a large scale project on the river.

A meeting between Chinese premier Wen Jiabao and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is expected on the sidelines of ASEAN Summit on October 23, when this issue and the tension between the two countries on Arunachal Pradesh could be discussed.
