Amid reports that “foreign elements” were trying to launch anti-India activities from its soil, Nepal on Monday said it would not allow anybody to do so and vowed to take strong measures if anybody is found involved in such acts.

"Nepal will not allow any element to launch activities directed against its neighbours," Rajan Bhattarai, Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal’s Foreign Affairs Adviser, said.

His remarks came at a news briefing at the end of Pakistan Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir’s three-day visit here when he was asked about media reports on attempts by “foreign elements” to launch anti-India activities from Nepal.

Bhattarai said the Nepalese government will take strong measures if anybody is found involved “in activities directed against any other country from our soil.”
