KATHMANDU, Jan 2: The National Assembly on Thursday endorsed a parliamentary stricture on India's encroachment upon Nepali territories including Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura.
After holding a discussion on the stricture, the Upper House endorsed it unanimously. Addressing the parliamentary session, NA Chairperson Ganesh Prasad Timalsina said that the government has been asked to execute the resolution motion in accordance with the NA regulation.
He said that the government has been directed to take diplomatic initiatives to remove Indian military forces from Nepali territory Kalapani.
The NA has strongly objected to the new Indian political map placing Nepali territory Kalapani inside Indian borders.
During the meeting, Foreign Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali said "The government has taken diplomatic measures to resolve border problems with India. We believe that this issue will be resolved through negotiations with our southern neighbor."
