Kathmandu, November 26
Indian Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla has arrived in Kathmandu on a two-day official trip to Nepal on Thursday morning.
Senior officials in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs received him at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu at around 10:50 am today.
The guest is scheduled to hold bilateral talks with the delegation led by his Nepali counterpart Bharat Raj Paudyal today itself. Likewise, he will pay courtesy calls on President Bidya Devi Bhandari, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, and Foreign Affairs Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali.
Speaking with journalists at the airport, Shringla said he was happy to have come to Nepal again, adding the visit would further strengthen the bilateral ties.
After some informal engagements, Shringla will return to New Delhi on Friday.
Nepal is preparing to raise concerns about the border dispute between the two countries in the bilateral meeting, but reports say India is not interested to talk about such critical issues during the visit now.
