Nepal urges India to resume military supplies
New Delhi, Feb 22 (UNI) Nepal has urged India for the resumption of military supplies which were suspended following the imposition of emergency in that country, Minister of State for External Affairs E.
Ahamed informed the Lok Sabha today.
"There have been some requests from His Majesty's Government of Nepal for resumption of military supplies. The issue of military supplies to Nepal remains under constant review of the Government," he said in a written reply.
Mr Ahamed said that after the lifting of emergency in April 2005 and release of several political leaders and activists, India had released some of the non-lethal supplies that were in the pipeline.
As a close and friendly neighbour of Nepal, India wishes to see an early return of peace, stability and development in Nepal, he said.
Mr Ahmad said the Government was aware that Nepal had received certain quantities of arm supplies, lethal and non-lethal, from third country sources, including China and Pakistan.
VISA CENTRE: The Government is considering a proposal to have a pilot outsourcing project for visa applications in London, Mr Ahamed said in a separate reply.
The project will be replicated elsewhere only if the London experiment was successful, he added.
