KATHMANDU – Deputy Prime Minister CP Mainali has said that the government will seek clarifications from European Union and Indian envoys in Kathmandu over reference made towards Nepal after the conclusion of the 13th EU-India Summit.
He said that the joint statement issued by the European Union and India over the reference to Nepal and its new Constitution was totally inappropriate.
“The reference is inappropriate. Foreign Ministry will summon the emissaries and look for clarifications from them,” Mainali said at an interaction in Kathmandu on Saturday.
Mainali also accused Indian envoy Ranjit Rae crossed diplomatic etiquette by inviting Madhesi leaders during Holi festival and assuring Indian support towards their demands.
“Ambassadors should work by following the decorum. Envoy Rae has disregarded the decorum and is involved in politics,” he said.Follow @gorkhapost
