NEW DELHI  — A new row has erupted between India and China following Beijing's refusal to stamp visas in passports of residents from the disputed eastern Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh.

Both India and China consider Arunachal Pradesh to be part of their territory and the giant Asian neighbors fought a brief war in 1962 over it.

Visa issues have festered between the two most populous nations for more than two years, after China refused to stamp visas in passports of residents from India's portion of Kashmir. China considers the Himalayan region to be a disputed territory between India and Pakistan, a close ally of Beijing.
