Kalapani Dispute – After Pakistan, Nepal Protests Over Territorial Dispute With India

India released an official map on October 31 that displayed parts of Kalapani, an area located on the western edge of Nepal. This is Kathmandu’s’s first public response after the map was released by India. Oli explained that the leftist government remains committed to finding an amicable solution to the border dispute with India.

“This patriotic government won’t let anyone take even an inch of Nepali land. The neighbouring country should withdraw its troops from our land,” PM Oli said”.
