General Naravane is the senior-most Indian official to visit Nepal following the countries’ boundary dispute since last November after placing disputed territories in its new political map.

It was India’s road construction to the Lipulekh area at 17,000 feet that sparked the diplomatic row between India and Nepal as Kathmandu claimed the area to be its territory.

Lipulekh is a tri-junction between India, Nepal and China situated atop the Kalapani Valley in Uttarakhand.

After this, Nepal brought out a new political map showing the contested area as its own.

India has rejected this new map of Nepal saying it is not based on historical facts or evidence.
