‘EPG report will help ‘reset’ Nepal-India ties’

Minister of Foreign Affairs Pradeep Kumar Gyawali today said the report finalised by the Eminent Persons Group on Nepal-India Relations would help ‘reset’ Nepal-India relations in line with the realities of the 21st century. He said the Nepal government was hopeful that the report would be implemented since the two prime ministers, who had taken a decision to set up the EPG, were still in the posts.

According to Gyawali, a meeting of the foreign ministers-level Nepal-India Joint Commission would be held soon where a gamut of issues related to bilateral relations would be discussed. Especially, the meeting will hold talks on agreements reached during Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s India visit and Indian PM Narendra Modi’s Nepal visit, and their effective implementation.

The sixth meeting of Nepal-India Oversight Mechanism, which includes Indian ambassador and Nepal’s foreign secretary, will be held in Kathmandu on July 18. Gyawali said the meeting would focus on implementation of bilateral projects, study if there are any hurdles and recommend solutions. Read More
