"Serious attention of the Government of Nepal has been drawn to media coverage in today's broadsheets attributed to senior political leaders of Bihar State of India making statements about inherently internal issues of Nepal," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. It said "the statements are provocative and uninformed about the ground realities and do not serve the fundamental interest of the two countries."
    
"The Government of Nepal expresses deep regrets over such statements. They are not helpful in the ongoing efforts aimed at normalising the situation," the statement said.
