Nepal's 'cartography' trick will not work in the UN, May get a big shock

Tensions continue to increase between India and Nepal on the border. Both countries continue to attack each other constantly. Amid this growing controversy, the Nepal government has said that it will send the disputed map to the international community in India, Google, and the United Nations by mid-August. However, this trick of Nepal's mapping in the UN does not seem to be successful.


In fact, in the revised map, Nepal has claimed the Indian territory of Limpudhara, Lipulekh, and Kalapani. But Nepal is not showing success in this plan. The reason is that the UN-issued maps also have a disclaimer. This disclaimer clearly states that the United Nations does not officially endorse or approve the designations, boundaries, and names used in this map.


In such a situation, it is clear from this disclaimer that the UN will not use any disputed map officially or administratively. In this context, Nepal will have to return empty-handed from the United Nations in the case of the controversial map.

Explain that the revised political and administrative map was released on 20 May by the government led by KP Sharma Oli in Nepal. After Parliament passed the controversial map, the government is now preparing to send its revised map to the international community.


Earlier, bilateral relations between India and Nepal were further heightened after Defense Minister Rajnath Singh inaugurated the 80-km-long strategic road connecting Lipulekh Pass to Uttarakhand's Dharchula on May 8.

Nepal had responded to the road opening by claiming that the road work was being done in the Nepali region. India had rejected her claim and said that the road was entirely within her territory.
