Nepal prime minister KP Sharma Oli has asserted that he will take back the Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh territories from India.
Addressing a session of the Nepal National Assembly, PM Oli said, “Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh which are located east of the Mahakali River belong to Nepal as per the Sugauli Treaty. We will get them back through diplomatic talks with India.”
His remarks come mere days before the Nepalese foreign minister is set to visit India amid strained ties between the two neighbours.
“Our foreign minister will visit India on January 14 during which his discussion will be centred on the issue of the map that we have published with the inclusion of the three territories,” Oli told Nepalese legislators.
