Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal “Prachanda” has said that India is serious in solving the issues his party has raised to protect Nepal’s sovereignty.
He said this to reporters after meeting External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna on Saturday.
“They [the Indian delegation] have expressed that they are serious to solve all these concerns,” said Mr. Dahal.
“We are raising these issues of old treaties and border problems not to disturb our relation with India but to create a more positive and more scientific basis to have a good relation with India,” he said. The Maoists demand that all “unequal agreements” with India need to be replaced and “border encroachment” stopped.
