‘Situation not conducive to hold Saarc Summit’
Sep 14, 2017-Nepali Ambassador to India Deep Kumar Upadhyay has said that Nepal, as the current chair of Saarc, is keen to revive the regional body but the political atmosphere “is not conducive”.
Indian Express reported Upadhyay as saying.
The 18th Saarc Summit, which was scheduled for November 9-10 last year,
was cancelled for indefinite period after India refused to participate in the event.
New Delhi has been saying that the regional atmosphere is not appropriate for holding the summit.
As a chair of Saarc, Nepal should have take initiations
to hold the regional summit but there has not been any progress. India has even
proposed a change of venue but Nepal has turned down the proposal.
