Military supplies to be restored if formal request by Nepal

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, June 7: India today said it would restore military supplies to Nepal if a formal request was made.

''If a formal request is made we will consider it,'' an External Affairs Ministry spokesman said during a briefing on the meeting between visiting Nepalese Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

''However, no request was made'' at the talks between the two prime ministers, the spokesman added.

India discontinued all military supplies to Nepal from February 1, 2005 after King Gyanendra dismissed his Prime Minister and the Cabinet and himself assumed charge of running the government.

The Indian action ended the supply of arms and ammunition, helicopters and armoured vehicles as well as military training to Nepali soliders.
