Amid the continuing diplomatic standoff between Nepal and India over the ongoing boundary dispute, the government is seeking suggestions on how to get India to sit down for talks.

In the past few weeks, Foreign Minister Pradeep Gyawali has held a series of meetings with former ministers, diplomats and experts seeking their advice, multiple officials told the Post in separate interviews.

Gyawali confirmed to the Post that efforts are being made to hold talks with India.

“Exercises are going on in Kathmandu and New Delhi to open the channels of communication with India, but it will take some time before there are results,” said Gyawali.

But nothing concrete has been decided on the way forward in initiating talks with India.
