India: Nepal’s constitution amendment is not tenable, but violative of understanding

Kathmandu, June 13

India has reiterated that Nepal’s move of incorporating the Kalapani-Limpiyadhura region is an ‘artificial enlargement’.

Just around one hour and a few minutes after Nepal’s House of Representatives, the lower house in Parliament, endorsed a constitution amendment bill recognising the new map, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said in his response, “This artificial enlargement of claims is not based on historical fact or evidence and is not tenable. It is also violative of our current understanding to hold talks on outstanding boundary issues.”

The official said Nepal’s new map included parts of Indian territory.

Earlier last month, when Nepal officially launched the new map, New Delhi had made similar remarks.
