Kathmandu, September 1
In a press conference held at the party office Paris Danda, Kathmandu on Friday, Vice President and Spokesperson of the Maoist Centre, Agni Prasad Sapkota said that a diplomatic initiative should be taken regarding the new map released by China.
The spokesperson said, “We need to engage in diplomatic dialogue on why such changes have been made in the new map released by China and why many important issues have not been included.”
China’s recently released new map does not include the territories of Kalapani, Lipulekh, and Limpiyadhura in Nepal’s map, which has raised objections. The spokesperson also mentioned that discussions on this matter are expected during Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal’s visit to China.
“Our party chairman and Prime Minister will be visiting China. There will be discussions on this matter.
The government should clarify this matter and ensure transparency with the public,” said Sapkota.
