New Delhi, Nov 7 (UNI) The government on Thursday said India and Nepal should be careful not to fall into hands of “vested interests” on boundary issue.

“….both countries should guard against vested interests trying to create differences between our two countries,” MEA spokesman Raveesh Kumar told reporters here.

Commenting on a recent row on a map, he said “Our map accurately depicts the sovereign territory of India. The new map has in no manner revised our boundary with Nepal.”

MEA spokesman further said : “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”.
