Kathmandu, January 11, 2021 (PPI-OT): The Prime Minister of Nepal, KP Sharma Oli has said that he will get back the territories of Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh from India. KP Sharma Oli’s remarks during his address to the National Assembly (Upper house) comes just days ahead of the Nepalese Foreign Minister’s visit to New Delhi on January 14.

“Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh, located east of the Mahakali River, belong to Nepal as per the Sugauli Treaty. We will get these back through diplomatic talks with India,” Oli said. “Our Foreign Minister will visit India on January 14 during which his discussion will be centred on the map issue,” he said. After Nepal released the map last year, India reacted sharply, calling it a unilateral act.
