He further urged all not to talk on baseless issues as it was not connected with Indo-Pacific Strategy.

Banskota clarified that there was no single point in the MCC pact that says that Nepal will support US Military activities.

He said that the grant to be provided by the USA through the pact will be utilized in infrastructure development and transmission line extensions.
