May 10, 2020

The Nepalese authorities have urged India not to “carry out any activities on its territory” after denouncing the official inauguration of a highway in controversial territory that leads to a Hindu shrine in Tibet.

The Nepalese Ministry of Foreign Affairs denounced the inauguration of this 80-kilometer road link to the Kailash-Mansarovar sanctuary as “a unilateral act that violates the agreement between the two countries to settle border disputes”.

The road was opened last Friday by Indian Interior Minister Rajnath Singh and crosses the controversial Lipu Lekh intersection, which is currently under the control of Indian forces, but is claimed by Nepal, whose ruling party, the Communist Party, has condemned the act as ” Violation of sovereignty “.
