India not to reopen key WWII road





India has abandoned plans to reopen a World War Two road that could connect its remote north-eastern states to China's Yunnan province through Burma.

Lawmakers from India's Assam state have been informed of the Indian decision by its ministry for the development of the north-eastern region.

This comes days after the 13th round of talks between India and China to resolve their border dispute.

The 1,079-mile-long Stillwell Road was built by American general Joe "Vinegar" Stillwell to supply Kuomintang forces in the war against Japan.
