The Nepal government has urged India to stop construction or extension of roads in Lipulekh of Nepal.

Speaking at a press conference organised at the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, government spokesperson and Minister for Communication and Information Technology Gyanendra Bahadur Karki said that the government is committed to resolve the border issue with India through diplomatic channels.

He said that the government of Nepal is clear on the fact that Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh and Kalapani are integral parts of Nepal.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a programme a few days ago had said that the Indian government has been constructing a road to Mansarovar of China through Lipulekh of Nepal.

Ruling coalition Nepali Congress, CPN (Maoist Centre) and CPN (Unified Socialist) have already expressed their dissatisfaction over the remarks of Indian Prime Minister Modi.
