अमेरिकाले कसरी हेर्छ नेपाललाई भारतीय आँखाबाट

नेपालमा भारतको राजनीतिक, सांस्कृतिक र भौगोलिक प्रभाव नौलो होइन । महाशक्ति अमेरिकाले नेपाललाई हेर्दा भारतीय नजरबाटै हेर्ने कुरो पनि नौलो होइन । अघिल्लो साता सार्वजनिक अमेरिकी सरकारका दस्तावेजले त्यो ‘हेराइ’ कसरी हुन्छ भन्ने देखाउँछन् जो धेरैका लागि नौलो र रुचिपूर्ण हुनसक्छ

०६२/०३ को जनआन्दोलन सुरु हुनु एक महिनाअघि सन् २००६ को मार्चमा भारत गएका अमेरिकी राष्ट्रपति जर्ज डब्लु बुसले नयाँ दिल्लीको हैदराबाद हाउसस्थित मुगल बगैंचामा भारतीय प्रधानमन्त्री मनमोहन सिंहसँग उभिँदै नेपालबारे बोलेका थिए । अङ्ग्रेजीका २५ शब्द, दुई अर्धविराम र एउटा पूर्णविरामयुक्त त्यो वाक्यमा बुसले भनेका थिए, ‘नेपालमा माओवादीले हिंसा त्याग्नुपर्छ र लोकतान्त्रिक संस्थाहरूको पुनःस्थापना गर्न राजाले राजनीतिक दलहरूसँग संवाद गर्नुपर्छ भन्नेमा हामी सहमत भयौं ।’

हामी अर्थात् बुस र सिंह, अमेरिका र भारत ।

ज्ञानेन्द्रको प्रत्यक्ष शासनअन्तर्गतको त्यतिबेलाको नेपालमा त्यो एउटा वाक्यले कम्पन उत्पन्न गराएको थियो । त्यसले तत्कालीन तानाशाहलाई थप दबाबमा पारेको थियो भने आन्दोलित पार्टीहरूलाई उत्साहित । अहिले अनुमान गर्न सजिलो भएको छ, त्यो वाक्य बुसले त्यतिबेला त्यत्तिकै बोलेका थिएनन् ।

‘आँखामा आँखा’

त्यसको चार दिनअघि काठमान्डुमा नेपालका लागि तत्कालीन भारतीय राजदूत शिवशंकर मुखर्जी र तत्कालीन अमेरिकी राजदूत जेम्स एफ मोरियार्टीले त्यसको आधार तयार पारेका थिए । Continue reading अमेरिकाले कसरी हेर्छ नेपाललाई भारतीय आँखाबाट

Summary
——-

ś1. (S/NF) Indian Ambassador Mukherjee believes it important
that we show the King and the people of Nepal that we remain
closely lashed up with respect to handling the situation
here. In a February 27 conversation, Mukherjee suggested
that it would be particularly useful if the President and
Prime Minister Singh discussed Nepal during their upcoming
conversations and pointed out that fact publicly. Mukherjee
agreed that pressure was building on King Gyanendra and hoped
that staying the course and encouraging peaceful activities
by the parties would lead to positive change; he shied away
from my suggestions that the GOI might consider options to
significantly up the ante on the King. Mukherjee noted that
he had been pushing Nepal’s political parties to push the
Maoists in a peaceful direction and would urge India’s
intelligence agencies to begin giving a similarly tough
message to the Maoists. Continue reading American Diplomatic Cable: The United States and India Must “See Eye-to-Eye on Nepal”

——- SUMMARY ——–

ś1. (S/NF) According to Indian Ambassador Shyam Saran, bilateral consultations between Indian and Nepali security and intelligence officers in Kathmandu on Sept 22-23 proceeded “”exceptionally well”” as a first step in institutionalizing security assistance and information exchange between the two governments. The GOI believes it can provide most of Nepal’s requirements for conventional military equipment, according to Saran, and looks to the USG to provide “”high-tech”” equipment. New initiatives include regularizing contacts between the two countries’ respective border security units and GOI training on how to counter urban terrorism. While both Ambassadors agreed that their efforts to promote a reconciliation between the political parties and the Palace had not so far proven successful, Saran reported that the Government of Nepal (GON) is considering holding phased national and local elections in 2004.

BUREAUCRACY

Classified By: Ambassador Michael Malinowski for reasons b,d.

ś1. (C) Summary: Delivery of M16A2 rifles for the Royal
Nepalese Army (RNA), already two months later than scheduled,
was delayed again on December 24 when the Government of India
(GOI) denied overflight permission for the transport plane.
The delay makes the US arms shipment the third in a string of
military assistance packages that have fallen victim to
bureaucratic obstacles on their way to Nepal. Continued
delay in provision of promised military aid is prompting the
Government of Nepal (GON) to look to India and other sources
for an interim solution to its critical equipment needs. End
