India has objected to a recently-unveiled political map by the Indian government that has placed Kalapani inside Nepali borders.
India has said a new political map of Nepal is not acceptable. India has protested after the Nepali government issued a new map covering Limpiyadhura, Kalapani and Lipulek areas.
The Indian Ministry of External Affairs issued a statement on Wednesday claiming that its territory was included in the map issued by Nepal. “This unilateral action is not based on historical facts and evidence,” It is against the understanding to resolve this border dispute through bilateral diplomatic dialogue.
Stating that Nepal’s claim is fake, India has said that it is not acceptable. Stating that Nepal is aware of India’s position on the border dispute, Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said, “We urge Nepal not to make such unreasonable claims and to respect India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
He also expressed confidence that the Nepali leadership would create an environment for resolving border disputes through diplomatic dialogue.
India similarly unilaterally released a new political map in November.
Nepal protested and sent a diplomatic note saying that the map was issued covering Nepali territory. The date of the meeting of the Foreign Secretary level mechanism to negotiate the border dispute was proposed twice.
However, the government of Nepal had on Monday passed a new map from the Council of Ministers after India tried to delay the Corona crisis by saying that it would hold talks again.
India was holding the meeting. Also, Nepal protested after the inauguration of Covid-19, which was built by encroaching on Nepali land in Lipulek, during the epidemic. Also wanted to communicate immediately from the border dispute.
