India on Thursday said the new map issued by it in November 2019 accurately depicts its sovereign territory and it has in no manner revised its boundary with Nepal.

MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar made the assertion while responding to a question on whether the Kalapani border issue was discussed between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli during their telephonic conversation on Wednesday.

PM Modi on Wednesday held phone conversations with top leaders of Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal and The Maldives, conveying New Year greetings and emphasising India’s commitment to regional peace and security as well as the ”neighbourhood first” policy.

“The boundary delineation exercise with Nepal is ongoing under the existing mechanism. We reiterate our commitment to find a solution through dialogue in the spirit of our close and friendly bilateral relations,” he said.

Raveesh Kumar said no official comment has been received from the Nepalese side on the matter.
