The Indian ambassador to Nepal, Vinay Mohan Kwatra, held a virtual talk with Nepal’s Foreign Secretary, Shankar Das Bairagi. This virtual meeting was the first official interaction between the two sides since KP Sharma Oli’s govt passed a new map in the parliament that included Indian territories. This map showed India’s territories of Limpiyadhura, Kalapani and Lipulekh as a part of Nepal. But the Indian govt has downplayed the meeting & referred to it as a “scheduled oversight mechanism meeting.”
