This step by Nepal may impact the India-Nepal relationship


Nepal’s Foreign Minister Gyawali said today that the 1947 Tri-party agreement between India, Britain & Nepal to recruit Gorkha soldiers for the army is redundant and needs to be renegotiated.


India currently has 35,000 Nepali citizens serving in the Indian army and recruits 1300 Gorkha youths annually. Nepal is pressing for Govt. presence in the selection process which is expected to impact the India-Nepal relationship.
