Kathmandu, Nepal, January 12, 2020: Foreign Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali is going to visit southern neighbor India on Thursday in a bid to mention soured relationship on ranges of issues including the border issues.
Though the purpose of the visit and the agendas of the discussions are not revealed yet officially, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has stated that foreign minister Gyawali will center his visit to discuss on border issues.
However, suspicions are also riffed here that recent political development emerged in Nepal after dissolution of the lower house of the federal parliament would be made a matter of discussion with the Indian authorities.
Though the government had repeatedly been stating that border disputes between the two countries would be settled through the diplomatic level, no discussions were held yet to settle the issue.
Concerned experts have casted a doubt that no progress would be made to retrieve the encroached land even though foreign minister Gyawali raised the issue during the discussion.
During an interview with a Indian television channel, Prime Minister Oli had mentioned even on Monday that ‘Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh which are located east of the Mahakali River belong to Nepal as per the Sugauli Treaty will be retrieved through diplomatic talks.
