Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, badly trapped in the domestic politics, has again called India’s territories to divert the attention of the people of his country. His statement is also important because there is going to be a foreign minister level talk between the two countries regarding the border dispute.
The Nepalese Prime Minister trapped in the clutches of China made this attempt to provoke India in his address to the National Assembly. Oli said that the withdrawal of these three areas is on the agenda of Foreign Minister Pradeep Gyawali, who is going to India to discuss the border dispute. On the invitation of Foreign Minister S Jaishankar, Gyawali is coming to India on 14 January to attend the Nepal-India Joint Commission meeting at the sixth level of Foreign Minister level.
Oli said that according to the Sugauli agreement, Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh are located in the east of the Mahakali river and are part of Nepal. “We will have diplomatic talks with India and our foreign minister is also going to India,” he said. He added, ‘Today, we are facing difficulties in taking back our land, because after the Indo-China war in 1962, when the Indian military forces started building their base in these areas, the Nepali rulers took control of their territories. Never tried to take it back. ‘
