Official Spokesperson's response to a query on Nepal
September 25, 2015
Response to a query from the media by the Official Spokesperson on the situation in Nepal:
"We have seen reports of obstructions at various entry-exit points at the India-Nepal border. The reported obstructions are due to unrest, protests and demonstrations on the Nepalese side, by sections of their population. As was already said on 21 September
2015, our freight forwarders and transporters had voiced complaints about the difficulties they are facing in movement within Nepal and their security fears, due to the prevailing unrest.
We would reiterate that issues facing Nepal are political in nature. Nepalese leadership needs to address the causes underlying the present state of confrontation credibly and effectively. Issues of differences should be resolved and institutionalized with
broad-based ownership and acceptance.
We do hope the situation will ease at the earliest.”
