Foreign Secretary to pay two-day visit to Nepal
New Delhi: Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh will leave for Nepal on Saturday on a two-day official visit during which she will discuss key bilateral and regional issues with the leadership there.
"The visit will provide an opportunity to review and further develop the partnership between the two countries and reiterate support for the expression of democratic aspirations by the people of Nepal," Ministry of External Affairs said here.
The visit, which comes at a time when Nepal`s political parties are sharply divided over whether to conduct polls in November or not, will provide India with an opportunity to get the first-hand assessment on the ground.
Singh is expected to meet Nepal President Ram Baran Yadav, Chairman of the Interim Election Council Khil Raj Regmi, Foreign Minister Madhav Ghimire, Chief Election Commissioner Nil Kantha Uprety and top leaders of the major political parties.
She will also review status of India-assisted projects in the Himalayan nation.
