New Delhi, Jan 17 (ANI): India has rubbished a media report about the resumption of arms supply to Nepal, and termed the report to be speculative.

"Cooperation in defence and security is an integral part of India's multi-faceted close bilateral relations between India and Nepal. The Indian Army and Nepal Army enjoy traditionally close relations. The factual position is that India has not supplied any lethal equipment to Nepal Army since 2005," said External Affairs Ministry Official Spokesperson Vishnu Prakash.

"The report about India resuming supply of lethal equipment to Nepal is speculative. India has consistently supported consensus-based politics and multi-party democracy in Nepal," he added, while responding to a question on a media report on the subject. (ANI)
