Such artificial enlargement of territorial claims will not be accepted by India. – Ministry of External Affairs, India

New Delhi: India has lashed out at Nepal Government after it released a controversial, revised, official map of Nepal on Wednesday, 20 May 2020, that includes parts of Indian territory of Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura as it’s own. 

In a terse message India has said: “This unilateral act is not based on historical facts and evidence. It is contrary to bilateral understanding to resolve outstanding boundary issues through diplomatic dialogue.”

In a statement, India’s Ministry of External Affairs said: “Such artificial enlargement of territorial claims will not be accepted by India. Nepal is well aware of India’s consistent position on this matter and we urge Nepal Govt to refrain from such unjustified cartographic assertion & respect India’s sovereignty & territorial integrity.”
