Pradeep Kumar Gyawali the Minister for Foreign Affairs, has said that border conflict between Nepal and India would be resolved through the diplomatic channel.
Minister Gyawali said so while replying to the queries raised on resolution proposal in today’s meeting of the National Assembly.
A resolution proposal concerning the border conflict of Kalapani, Lipulek, and Limpiyadhura of Darchula district under SudurPaschim Province was registered where lawmaker KhimlalBhattarai is the proposer and lawmaker SaritaPrasai seconded it.
Furthermore, the Foreign Minister informed the meeting that the telephone conversation between PM KP Sharma Oli and Indian PM Narendra Modi on January 1 was focused on the issue of further establishing relations between the two countries.
Further Minister Gyawali said that problems concerning the issue of territory would not have been surfaced today if national consensus was forged on the issue at that time. “The map of Nepal was determined from the Sugauli treaty and the map where Mechi river is the border in the east and Kali in the west is the real and authorized map of Nepal. “
Saying the PM Oli called all-party meeting soon after India published a new map incorporating Nepal’s territory and Foreign Ministry sent the proposal incorporating Nepal’s territory, he said, “India in its reply accepted that there is some problem and asked to find out a solution through the diplomatic channel.”
The resolution proposal was passed by the majority. NA Chair Ganesh Prasad Timilsina directed the government to implement the resolution proposal.
