In this episode, we are joined by the research director of NIICE Nepal, Dr. Pramod Jaiswal, in discussing Nepal’s foreign policy, primarily in regard to its large neighbors, India and China.
The conversation covers the history of the disputed Kalapani and Lipulekh regions that have stirred up controversy on the Indo-Nepalese border, as well as the Chinese construction in the Humla region of Nepal. We further talk about the Madheshi people, the Gorkha regiment, Nepal’s involvement in the Belt and Road Initiative, and a possible tripartite alliance between India, China and Nepal and what that would mean for the development of Nepal.
