NEW DELHI (AFP) - India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Saturday that he believes a border dispute over an alleged incursion by Chinese soldiers can be resolved, the Press Trust of India reported.

"It is a localised problem, we do believe it can be solved," Dr Singh was quoted as saying by the news agency.

Chinese soldiers were alleged to have intruded across the disputed border in the Ladakh region earlier this month.

India and China have an unresolved boundary dispute, and relations are often prickly - a legacy of a 1962 border war. The alleged incursion has marked a renewal of tensions between the Asian neighbours.
