Nepal Foreign Affairs (KATHMANDU, 20 August 2019) – Minister for Foreign Affairs Pradeep Kumar Gyawali on Monday has urged political party leaders not to make surface comments on foreign affairs and bilateral issues.
In a press meet here at MoFA, Minister Gyawali objected the remarks of Nepali Congress lawmaker Pradeep Giri in a meeting of the International Relations committee under the House of Representatives (HoR) recently.
Similarly, Minister Gyawali said that Nepal is closely watching the growing situation in Kashmir after India scrapped the Articles 370 and 35 A of the constitution. He added that the issue of Kashmir is a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan and it should be resolved through talks.
Minister Gyawali said “Nepal wants to see peace and stability in its neighboring areas and across the globe.” He said Nepali nationals residing in Kashmir are safe and Nepali embassy in New Delhi was in touch with them.
This is the first official statement of Nepal government on the disputed move of Modi government. Nepal has been saying that it won’t interfere in the internal affairs of others and would not allow others to interfere in the domestic affairs of Nepal.
