Nepalese parliament recently adopted a new political map of the country showing these areas as part of its own territory.
India had termed the 'artifical enlargement' of territorial claims by Nepal untenable after the National Assembly had approved the new political map of the country.
The Bill’s introduction had evoked strong reactions from India. Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Anurag Srivastava had described the move unilateral and not based on historical facts.
The House of Representatives opened the discussion on the amendment bill which will be put for voting after the deliberations are over.
The talks are continuing at the military level and I understand a senior military officers level talk possibly will take place on 6 June, Army Chief informed me today, said Singh.
