The Nepal-China border study committee formed to study problems relating to the Nepal-China border from Limi Lapcha to Hilsa of Humla district has submitted its report to Home Minister Balkrishna Khand.
Coordinator of the Committee, also Joint-Secretary at Home Ministry, Jay Narayan Acharya, submitted the report on Sunday.
Receiving the report, Minister Khand pledged to make efforts to implement the report prepared following on-site visits to the disputed bordering areas and fact-finding about the border. "The report has paved a way to look into bordering areas in other parts of the country. The government will be effortful to enforce the issues raised in the report," he added.
Extending thankfulness to the Committee members for accomplishing the task by reaching such remote places, Khand viewed that the report would be important to protect Nepal's territory in Limi Lapcha and Hilsa and to understand the people and the geographical condition in those places.
Joint-Secretary Acharya, on the occasion, appraised the Minister about the report and its conclusion and recommendation. The Committee comprises Deputy Director General of the Department of Survey Sushil Dangol, SSP of Nepal Police Umeshraj Joshi, Armed Police Force's SSP Pradeep Kumar Pal and National Investigation Department's Deputy Investigation Director Ashok Kumar Shrestha.
