In order to strengthen the long-standing relationship between India and Nepal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke with his Nepalese counterpart Pushpa Kamal Dahal, also known as “Prachanda,” over the phone on Saturday. They spoke about a variety of cooperation-related topics.
The leaders spoke about various aspects of bilateral cooperation between India and Nepal and reviewed discussions that had taken place during PM Prachanda’s most recent visit to the country. The history of high-level contacts between the two nations is carried on by the phone call between Modi and Prachanda.
“To advance the bilateral partnership and further strengthen the deep bonds of friendship between the two countries, the two leaders reviewed various aspects of the India-Nepal bilateral cooperation and followed up on discussions held during Prime Minister Prachanda’s recent visit to India from May 31 to June 3, 2023,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement.
Ministerial-level Joint Commission meeting between India and Nepal
A ministerial-level Joint Commission meeting between Nepal and India is also anticipated to take place here in order to examine the whole range of bilateral ties and determine the best course of action moving forward. The Joint Commission, the highest-level bilateral institution between the two nations, will be holding its sixth meeting this year.
Foreign Affairs Minister of Nepal, NP Saud, said earlier on August 1 that S Jaishankar, his Indian counterpart, would be traveling to Kathmandu to take part in the meeting. “I invited Indian Minister for External Affairs Jaishankar to attend the meeting in Kathmandu as it is Nepal’s turn to host the meeting,” Saud told news agency PTI at the most recent BIMSTEC Foreign Ministers’ Retreat held in Bangkok. Foreign Minister Saud said that the meeting would most likely take place in October or November, while the exact date has not yet been set.
