Obstruction to Nepal-bound cargo from Nepali side: Indian Embassy
The Indian Embassy on Friday said that the reported obstructions to the Nepal-bound cargo and freights were due to unrest, protests and demonstrations on the Nepali side stressing on the need for Nepali leadership to address the causes underlying the present state.
In a press statement issued on Friday in response to a query from the media, the embassy says, “We have seen reports of obstructions at various entry-exit points at the India-Nepal border. 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.”
The press release further states that the issues Nepal is facing are political in nature adding that issues of differences should be resolved and institutionalised with broad-based ownership and acceptance.
