Nepal, India Setting Up Working Group To Resolve Border Issues
The two sides recently exchanged a diplomatic note on setting up the boundary working group (BWG) and are likely to announce it during Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's visit to Nepal from July 25.
Nearly all border issues between Nepal and India have been resolved except the controversial boundary areas at Susta and Kalapani which have frequently come up during bilateral talks.
The working group will seek a mandate to erect border pillars, maintain and renovate damaged pillars and to clear the Dash Gaja along the Nepal-India border to avoid encroachment.
The first meeting of the working group is expected to take place in Nepal.
In 2007, both countries prepared 182 strip maps of their boundary excluding the Susta and Kalapani stretches.
