Kathmandu, June 26
Minister for Foreign Affairs Pradeep Kumar Gyawali says India is not positive about holding talks with Nepal in a bid to solve the recent border dispute.
The decades-old dispute between the two countries about Kalapani-Limpiyadhura region has escalated after India and Nepal published new political maps of the countries incorporating the region, in November 2019 and May 2020 respectively.
Speaking in the standing committee meeting of the Nepal Communist Party in Kathmandu on Friday, Gyawali said Nepal had continued its efforts for a peaceful solution, but India was not responding to them positively.
However, Nepal was still hopeful that India would be ready for the talks soon, according to him.
Meanwhile, 18 leaders of the party spoke about contemporary political issues during the meeting today. The meeting will continue on Saturday also.
