India-Nepal 1950 Treaty to change

Kathmandu,

The Eminent Persons Group on Nepal-India relations has agreed to change the 1950 Treaty of Peace and Friendship even as the eight-member task force is yet to agree if the treaty should be replaced or amended, The Kathmandu Post has reported.

After agreeing to change the present status of the treaty that Nepal calls “unequal”, the sixth meeting of the EPG concluded in New Delhi on Friday.

The group will now get down to writing the report to be submitted to the two governments by suggesting changes in the contentious treaty, including recommendations on improving other facets of bilateral relations.

The panel is tasked with preparing its final report by July-end, also addressing other bilateral issues concerning trade, transit, border and socio-cultural relations.
