Indo - Nepal Legal Cooperation is need of hour : Dr Pandey
India and Nepal share a unique relationship as neighboring countries, with a shared history, culture, and traditions.They also share a porous border, which makes it essential for both countries to have legal cooperation and exchange.Legal cooperation between India and Nepal is crucial in many areas, including trade and commerce, border management, law enforcement, and extradition.One of the primary areas where legal cooperation between India and Nepal is necessary is in border management.The two countries share a 1,850 km border, which is marked by rivers, forests, and mountains. As a result, illegal border crossings are common, and it becomes essential for both countries to cooperate in monitoring and securing the border.Legal cooperation can help in sharing information, intelligence, and resources to prevent illegal activities and maintain law and order along the border.Another critical area where legal cooperation is necessary is in law enforcement.India and Nepal face several common security challenges, including cross-border terrorism, organized crime, and drug trafficking.Legal cooperation in these areas can help in sharing intelligence, coordinating investigations, and arresting criminals who cross the border.This cooperation can also help in preventing the misuse of the border by criminals and terrorists who want to evade the law.Legal cooperation is also essential in the context of trade and commerce. India is one of Nepal's largest trading partners, and the two countries have a Free Trade Agreement in place.However, trade disputes can arise, and legal cooperation can help in resolving these disputes through legal channels.Cooperation in this area can also help in ensuring that trade between the two countries is conducted legally and without any illegal activities.Apart from legal cooperation, legal exchange is also essential between India and Nepal. Legal exchange involves the sharing of legal knowledge, expertise, and best practices between the two countries.This exchange can help in improving the legal systems of both countries and promoting cooperation between the legal communities of the two countries. Legal exchange can also help in promoting cultural understanding and building trust between the two countries.India and Nepal face several legal issues that require cooperation and exchange. One such issue is the trafficking of women and children. Nepal is a source, transit, and destination country for women and children who are trafficked for sexual exploitation and forced labor.India is also a destination country for women and children who are trafficked from Nepal. Legal cooperation and exchange in this area can help in preventing and combating human trafficking and protecting the victims of trafficking.( Dr Pandey, is Chairman of Indo-Nepal Legal Forum) .
