The Nepalese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has said Bhutan has not responded to Nepal’s request to fix the date and venue for bilateral talk.
The Himalayan Times (THT) quoted a reliable source at the MoFA as saying that Bhutan has not yet replied the ministry’s letters, dispatched twice this month.
“The dialogue could not happen this year due to Bhutan’s lack of interest,” said the Ministry’s official, “We requested twice, but there was no response.”
In November, Prime Ministers of both the countries had agreed to sit for a decisive talk within December this year.
Meanwhile, the report also said that the Foreign Ministry of Bhutan has failed to comment on the delay of the talk.
“A THT email requesting the Bhutanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs to give their version on the delay in dialogue on refugees failed to elicit any response.”
