India protests UN official’s comments from Nepal
A new cold war has begun between India and the world body after the UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) – which was invited by the Nepal government last year to manage the arms and combatants of the Maoists and oversee the crucial April poll – tried to get more responsibilities but was refused by Nepal’s ruling parties.
Undeterred by the rebuff, UNMIN lobbied for a role in Nepal’s security sector reform at the UN Security Council meeting last month but was blocked by India, China and Russia.
Kahane’s comment, coming on the heels of UNMIN’s defeat at the UNSC, is being regarded by India as an attempt to affect India-Nepal ties.
A new Cold War? WTF?
And, when has India NOT interfered with Nepal’s internal matters!
