Kathmandu, August 23
A National Assembly member representing the main opposition Nepali Congress party on Friday has commented that Minister for Foreign Affairs Pradeep Kumar Gyawali’s statement that Nepal was looking at the ongoing political tension in Jammu and Kashmir of India closely was not enough.
Jitendra Narayan Dev demands that the government make a national consensus about the issue and state its opinion officially.
“The Minister said they were looking closely. But, how long they will continue looking at,” Dev questioned during the Assembly meeting today, “If the government has guts, it should speak.”
After the government states its opinion officially, other parties including the Nepali Congress would also clarify their positions, according to him.
In another context, Dev said the government could not make its positions clear about the 1950 Peace and Friendship Treaty with India during the recent Joint Commission meeting.
