India reiterates its position

KATHMANDU: The Indian government on Thursday reiterated its position regarding the Nepal-India border dispute in the Kalapani region.

Spokesperson for India’s Ministry of External Affairs Raveesh Kumar said the Indian map accurately depicted the sovereign territory of India.

“The new map has in no manner revised our boundary with Nepal. The boundary delineation exercise with Nepal is ongoing under the existing mechanism. We reiterate our commitment to resolve outstanding boundary issue through dialogue in the spirit of close and friendly bilateral relations between the two countries,” Kumar said in a televised weekly press briefing in New Delhi.
