The Prime Minister of Nepal Sher Bahadur Deuba is all set to arrive in Delhi on his 5-day tour to India on Wednesday. Deuba is expected to attend a business event in the national capital.
This will be first official overseas trip for Prime Minister of Nepal Sher Bahadur Deuba.
Deuba, who will be accompanied by a high level delegation, will also call on the President and the Vice- President, an external affairs ministry release said.
“In recent years, India-Nepal partnership has witnessed significant growth in all areas of cooperation. The upcoming visit will provide an opportunity to both the sides for holding wide-ranging discussions on issues of mutual interest, and advancing age-old special ties of friendship between our two countries,” it said.
Ahead of his Sher Bahadur Deuba’s visit, Nepal foreign minister Krishna Bahadur Mahara said that Nepal wants to maintain cordial relations through peaceful diplomacy and dialogue with both India and Nepal.
Dauba, the 71-year-old veteran Nepali politician known for his close ties to India, took over the reigns of Nepal when the Himalayan nation was navigating a political turmoil over the implementation of the Constitution and unrest in the southern plains due to the Madhesi agitation.
Deuba took over as prime minister in June 2017. During his four-day visit he will also travel to Hyderabad, Tirupati and Bodh Gaya.
