Dec 11: Indian Ambassador to Nepal Rakesh Sood said his country can do nothing for repatriation of the exiled Bhutan to their homeland.
Contrast to Indian foreign minister’s statement two years ago that Bhutanese refugees is an international issue, Sood told journalists in Jhapa on Wednesday that it is a bilateral issue between Nepal and Bhutan.
He added, the two countries – Nepal and Bhutan – should resolve mutually and that India will not intervene in the matter.
Ambassador Sood said that the exiled Bhutanese problem is very much on the way of being resolved thanks to the third country resettlement option. “One-fourth of the total exiled Bhutanese have already been resettled in various countries including America. This is a positive development towards its durable solution,” he added.
“Did the Bhutanese refugees fly over to Nepal from Bhutan without flying over the Indian Sky”? Or did they-the Bhutanese nationals-made a record high jump?
