On Wednesday, the Ministry of External Affairs lashed out at Nepal for releasing a new political map that showed India’s territories as its own.

As a result, External Affairs urged Kathmandu to refrain from an act that is portrayed as an ‘unjustified cartographic assertion’ and respect India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Recently, Nepal brought out a revised political map wherein India’s territories of Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh, and Kalapani was considered as its own.

A spokesperson also said that this unilateral act of considering India’s territories as its own is contrary to a bilateral understanding to resolve the outstanding boundary issues through dialogue and will not be accepted by India. He also said that it will be favourable if Nepalese leadership can create a positive atmosphere for diplomatic dialogue so as to resolve any boundary issues.

India’s revised political map was released after a new road was inaugurated connecting the Lipulekh pass in Uttarakhand with the Kailash Mansarovar route in China.
