Kathmandu: Nepal President Ram Baran
Yadav, who met External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Saturday,
will make his maiden official visit to New Delhi next month.

Krishna today met the Nepalese President at Rashtrapati
Bhawan and discussed the political developments in the country
amid a deadlock between the 22-party coalition and the Maoists
over Yadav`s decision to reinstate General Rukmangad Katawal,
the then Army Chief dismissed by Maoists Prime Minister
Prachanda in May last year.

The Nepalese President is visiting India on February
15 at the invitation of the President of India and we
discussed the matter with President Yadav, Krishna told
journalists after the meeting.

This will be the first visit of the Nepalese president
to any foreign country after Nepal was declared a republic in
May 2008.

We are looking forward to the first visit of Nepalese
President to India, Krishna said.

They also discussed bilateral issues and constitution
drafting process.
