Nepal’s Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba accompanied by his spouse Dr Arzu Deuba is scheduled to pay an official visit to India. According to the Ministery of External Affairs, Deuba will visit the nation from 01-03 April at the invitation of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
PM Deuba will also be accompanied by a high-level delegation. This will be the first bilateral visit for the Nepalese PM after taking the office in July 2021.
On 2 April, PM Deuba will call Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu to hold talks with PM Modi. EAM S Jaishankar and NSA Ajit Doval will call on the Prime Minister of Nepal. Apart from the official engagements, PM Deuba will be visiting Varanasi, UP.
Deuba had visited India during each of his four previous terms as Nepal’s prime minister. In 2017, he paid his last official visit to India as Prime Minister. Nepal is vital to India’s overall strategic geopolitical interests, and the two nations’ leaders have frequently referred to their age-old “Roti Beti” relationship.
Meanwhile, the impending visit will provide the two sides with the chance to examine their broad beneficial collaboration and see how far they can take it for both nations.
