On Friday, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar expressed confidence that the ongoing visit of Nepalese Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba to India will further strengthen ties between the two countries. Jaishankar made the comments after calling Deuba.
“Satisfied to call Prime Minister @SherBDeuba from Nepal during his official visit to India. Convinced that this visit will further strengthen our close neighborly relations,” the Foreign Minister said in a tweet.
Deuba, together with a high-level delegation, came here on Friday for a three-day visit. He and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold extensive talks on Saturday, according to the Foreign Ministry (MEA).
It is Deuba’s first bilateral visit abroad since becoming prime minister in July last year for the fifth time following a period of political turmoil in Kathmandu. He had visited India during each of his four previous terms as Nepal’s Prime Minister.
