Nepal-India boundary issues should be resolved through dialogue – India

Nepal Foreign Affairs (KATHMANDU, 3 January 2020) – Indian government has reiterated its commitment to resolve border issues with Nepal through dialogue.

While speaking in a regular press conference in New Delhi, Spokesperson of India’s Ministry of External Affairs, Raveesh Kumar said the solution would be sought through friendly dialogue. “We reiterate our commitment to resolve boundary issues through dialogue in the spirit of close friendship,” he said.

He, however, said the new map issued to address the changed status of some Indian province had nothing to do with Nepal-India border. He said the map ‘accurately’ depicts the sovereign territory of India.

Responding to a query by a journalist during a regular press briefing in New Delhi on Thursday, he said the new map has in no manner revised India’s boundaries with Nepal.

“As far as boundary question is concerned, we have made our position very clear. I can only reiterate that our map accurately depicts the sovereign territory of India. The new map has in no manner revised our boundaries with Nepal,” he said. 

Spokesperson Kumar, however said that the boundary delineation exercise with Nepal is ongoing under the existing mechanisms.
