Nepal awaits to talks with India, signs of positive resolution of the border dispute

On the one hand, Nepal has passed the constitutional amendment proposal in Parliament regarding its new map, on the other hand, it is also waiting for the date of positive talks with India on the border dispute. Nepal's Foreign Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali has said that the government expects positive talks with India soon.


Gyawali's statement came after the Indian Foreign Ministry's statement in which India said that the way to negotiate the border dispute with Nepal in a positive and constructive way is always open. Gyawali said in Parliament that Nepal is ready for this as soon as India agrees to talks. He has expressed confidence that the issue will be resolved through two-way talks.


In fact, the centuries-old dispute between the two countries was renewed again when India released its new map in November last year and included the controversial Kalapani in it. In response to this, Nepal also recently released its new map when India inaugurated the road to Mansarovar passing through Lipulekh Pass.


Since then, this dispute has increased further. Nepal's disillusionment increased after India ignored the proposal for talks made by Nepal, and in a hurry, it also got its map approved by Parliament. It is evident that after seeing the positive attitude of both the countries, it is beginning that soon the path of dialogue will be opened and both countries will definitely move forward towards the resolution of this dispute.
