The Himalayan Chill In India-Nepal Ties Is Blowing Over With Both Sides Lining Up Series Of Meetings

India-Nepal ties, which had been damaged by Nepal Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli’s jingoism (read this), is finally set for a course correction with Kathmandu initiating conciliatory measures.

A number of high-level exchanges between the two countries are being scheduled after Oli jettisoned the anti-India stance he had adopted to stave off a grave political crisis within his Nepal Communist Party (NCP).

Oli broke the ice by placing a call to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Independence Day (15 August). This call was preceded by a tweet by Oli greeting Modi and the people of India on the eve of Independence Day.

During the 15-minute call, the two premiers discussed ways to strengthen bilateral ties. Modi underlined the deep civilisational ties between the two countries and urged Oli to strengthen those ties.

Oli’s overtures were quickly followed two days later by talks between India’s Ambassador to Nepal Vinay Kwatra and Nepal’s Foreign Secretary Shankar Das Bairagi. The two discussed the status of the India-aided development projects in the Himalayan country and decided to fast-pace those projects.

Since then, at Oli’s insistence, officials in Nepal’s Foreign Ministry and others have established contact with India and have been urging New Delhi to sit for talks over various issues with Nepal.

China Diverts Course Of Rivers Flowing Into Nepal To Occupy Nepalese Land, Constructs Nine Buildings
https://swarajyamag.com/insta/china-div ... -buildings
The Chinese People's Liberation Army has constructed at least nine buildings in Nepal's Humla district, Times of India has reported.

The building have reportedly been built at a distance of 2 kilometre from the border in an area called Lapcha-Limi. The Chinese have also restricted local residents of the province from entering the area. The report adds that China is making transgressions into the Lapcha-Limi area for quite a few years now.

The report adds that China has allegedly diverted the course of rivers flowing into Nepal whilst constructing roads in the Tibet Autonomous Region. This has allowed them to occupy the land close to these rivers and proclaim it to be a part of their dominion.

KATHMANDU, Oct 21: Samant Kumar Goel, chief of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), the external intelligence agency of India, has arrived in Kathmandu on Wednesday afternoon.

A nine-member delegation led by India's RAW chief landed at the Tribhuvan International Airport by an Indian Air Force aircraft at 12:45 PM, according to a source.

Goel will be staying here for nine hours, the source said. He is scheduled to hold high-level meetings in Kathmandu.

It was not immediately clear about the purpose of his visit.

This is the second visit of chief of Indian intelligence agency of Nepal after his appointment in June last year. Goel had paid a three-day visit to Nepal on July 20, 2019.

The 'surprise visit' of the head of Indian intelligence agency is taking place couple of weeks ahead of Indian Army Chief MM Naravane's visit to Nepal.

According to Nepal Army headquarters, the Indian Army Chief is visiting Nepal in November. However, the Army headquarters has not made public specific dates for the visit yet.

Nepal PM seems to have gone soft on the 'new map' after meeting with RAW chief.
Controversy over old map of Nepal in Oli’s Dussehra greeting card
Nepal Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli was at the centre of a new controversy Saturday following the use of the country’s old map in his Vijaya Dashami greeting card which had the national emblem and his portrait printed on it.

Following escalation of the boundary dispute with India this summer, Nepal published a new map to include areas of the Indian state of Uttarakhand.

The Opposition criticised him for using the old map in the card, saying he was trying to “backtrack on the issue, undermining the spirit behind the national consensus on the territorial issue”.

Surya Thapa, the PM’s press advisor, said the map in the greeting card was the new one, but because of its small size, the new areas were not visible.

Six weeks ago, Oli had ordered withdrawal of school textbooks that had included the new map. India and Nepal are trying to mend ties, severely strained after Nepal published its new map.

Earlier this week, Oli had a long meeting with Indian R&AW chief Samant Kumar Goel, and his own party leaders were furious that he did not keep them in the loop. Indian Army chief General MM Naravane is scheduled to visit Nepal next month.

This is significant in the backdrop of upcoming visit of Indian Army chief to Nepal.
China illegally occupies Nepal's land at several places; Indian intelligence agencies sound alert
New Delhi: China has illegally occupied Nepal`s land at several places spreading over seven bordering districts and Indian intelligence agencies have sounded an alert in New Delhi.

The agencies have flagged that Beijing is fast moving forward and further pushing Nepali boundaries by encroaching more and more landmass. "The actual scenario could be worse as the Nepali Communist Party (NCP) is trying to shield the expansionist agenda of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)," an internal intelligence agency report pointed out.

It stated that Nepali districts which are victims of China`s land-grabbing plan include Dolakha, Gorkha, Darchula, Humla, Sindhupalchowk, Sankhuwasabha and Rasuwa.

China has pushed the international boundary 1,500 metres towards Nepal in Dolakha including pushing the boundary pillar Number 57 in the Korlang area in Dolakha, which was previously located at top of Korlang.

This is a very cryptic message from NSA. This can point even to Nepal or Bhutan in addition to TSP and China.

Who would have imagined the Maoist movement in Nepal would have challenged the very existence of Nepal itself.

It appears that Sharma Oli has made a uturn even in the face of protests from within his party. Wonder what magic pill was used by India to make such quick changes in the situation.
India takes big step to normalise Nepal ties, skeds foreign secy visit
Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla will travel to Kathmandu later this month for formal dialogue between the two countries, a sign that New Delhi is willing to go an extra mile to improve bilateral ties that had nosedived earlier this year, people familiar with the matter said.

The decision to send the foreign secretary comes days after Army Chief General MM Naravane was conferred the honorary rank of general of Nepali Army. Gen Naravane had met Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on this visit who had underscored that the two countries could resolve all problems between them through dialogue since India and Nepal have a long-standing special relationship.

KP Sharma Oli had faced resistance within his cabinet to Gen Naravane’s visit but had dealt with it, withdrawing the defence portfolio from deputy prime minister Ishwar Pokhrel.
