New Delhi: Nepalese Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli on Monday said his country does not play India or China “card” and there is “no question” of favouring one over the other as it is not a viable “policy option”.

He said “misunderstandings” between India and Nepal “do not” persist anymore and termed it as the “most important” outcome of his first visit to India after assuming office last October.

He made the remarks while delivering the 21st Sapru House Lecture of the Indian Council of World Affairs here, which was presided over by external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and attended by top members of the visiting Nepalese delegation.

“The main mission of my coming to India was to clear misunderstandings and apprehensions that surfaced in the past few months following the promulgation of the Constitution,” he said.

“In my meetings I tried to clarify what we did in the past few months, what our intentions were,” he added.

Location: India, Delhi, New Delhi
