Nepal PM KP Sharma Oli on Issues With India: In the voice of Nepal’s Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, there has been a lot of softness about India. Earlier, he was seen very aggressive against India regarding the border dispute. But now he says that there were some misunderstandings with India, which are now cleared. Oli said that the two countries should move forward together looking at the future, neighbors share both love and trouble. He has recently given an interview to BBC, in which he has said these things.
KP Sharma Oli said that there were misunderstandings between the two neighbours, which are no longer there. However, what were those issues, about which there were misunderstandings, he did not say anything about it (Nepal PM on India). Addressing the country last month, he had said that the outstanding border issues with India would be resolved through diplomatic channels on the basis of historical agreements, maps and documents. But now he said that we should not get stuck in old things. Rather, we should move towards the future.
Oli running a minority government
Oli said that we have to build positive relationships. At present, Oli is running a minority government in the country. The opposition of the country has gone to the Supreme Court against the decision of President Bidya Devi Bhandari, in which she has asked to dissolve the House of Representatives and hold fresh elections on the recommendation of Prime Minister Oli. The decision has been termed “unconstitutional” by the opposition (Nepal India Issues). Oli has said that Nepal has a unique relationship with India, such a relationship is not with any other country. Neighbours share both love and trouble. Aren’t there troubles between the Chileans and the Argentines?
Nepal’s new map was released
Relations between India and Nepal deteriorated last year when Nepal released a new political map, in which Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura, which come under Indian territory, were described as part of Nepas. India had lodged a strong objection to this (Nepal India Relationship). India had said that Nepal’s action violated the understanding reached between the two countries to resolve border issues through dialogue. However, later there was a lot of talks between the two countries.
now want help in covid
Now in the COVID-19 crisis, Nepalese PM said that India should help differently to control and prevent this infection as compared to other countries (Nepal Coronavirus Situation). The border of Nepal and India is open, so India should pay special attention to helping Nepal in some places. If the virus gets controlled in India and spreads in Nepal, it will not make any sense, as it will spread later. However, he has thanked India for being given the vaccine. He said that he has high hopes from India.
