Indian Foreign Secretary Vinay Mohan Kwatra, who also served as the Indian ambassador to Nepal for two years, is coming to Kathmandu on a two-day official visit next week.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says Kwatra is coming to Nepal coming Monday at the invitation of his Nepali counterpart Bharat Raj Paudyal.

Officials say Kwatra will call on President Bidya Devi Bhandari, Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Foreign Minister Bimala Rai Paudyal besides holding bilateral talks with his counterpart.

“The foreign secretaries of Nepal and India will discuss various matters of bilateral cooperation such as connectivity, power trade, agriculture, health and culture, among others,” the statement reads.

Meanwhile, Kwatra is also expected to hand over an invitation to Dahal for an India visit.

“The visit is in continuation of the regular exchange of visits between the two friendly neighbours. The visit will be an opportunity to further expand and deepen Nepal-India ties.”

Kwatra will leave Kathmandu on Tuesday.
