Kathmandu: Nepalese Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Tuesday reiterated Nepal’s claim to Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh and Kalapani after the government showed the “disputed” areas on the newly released political map.

“As Prime Minister of the incumbent government, I would like to assess to the honorable House that the issue of Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh and Kalapani is not covered, conclusions are being drawn. We will not allow this issue to fade away. areas are recycled, ”said KP Sharma Oli.
The Nepalese cabinet has approved a new political map that includes the “disputed” areas of Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh and Kalapani. Nepal considers the Indian territories as its own.

India and Nepal have an open border of 1800 km (1118 miles). Nepal claims the Lipulekh Pass under the 1816 Sugauli Treaty, which it entered into with the British colonial rulers to define its western border with India.
Kathmandu also claims the highly strategic areas of Limpiyadhura and Kalapani, although Indian troops have been deployed there since fighting New Zealand in the 1962 war with China.

According to the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MEA), the road passing through the Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand is “entirely in India”.
He said the road follows the earlier route used by the pilgrims of Kailash Mansarovar Yatra. “Under the present project, the same path has been made flexible for the convenience and convenience of pilgrims, locals and traders,” the MEA said.
