No supply of lethal equipment to Nepal: India
New Delhi: India on Monday dismissed media speculation about supplying arms to Nepal, saying New Delhi had not provided any lethal equipment to the Nepal Army since 2005.
"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," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vishnu Prakash said here.
"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 said.
He was reacting to a report in the Monday edition of a Delhi newspaper that India resumed arms supply after the UN mission left the Himalayan Kingdom on January 15.
