In an effort to strengthen the bilateral ties, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will be on two-day visit to Nepal, starting from Thursday.
“The visit is in keeping with the tradition of regular high-level political exchanges between India and Nepal, and reflects the expanding bilateral partnership and strengthening ties across diverse sectors,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.
The upcoming visit will provide an opportunity to hold discussions with political leaders of Nepal on issues of mutual interest. It would also advance age-old, special ties of friendship between India and Nepal.
This is the first diplomatic visit by Sushma Swaraj after Nepal elected its new Leftist coalition government.
