New Delhi: Nepal Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba held a bilateral meeting with PM Narendra Modi at Hyderabad House in New Delhi Saturday. This is PM Deuba’s maiden visit to India since coming to power in Nepal in July 2021.

Modi and Deuba, who has earlier held the PM’s chair for four other terms, Saturday agreed to give priority to trade and cross-border connectivity initiatives in all respects. The beginning of the Jayanagar-Kurtha rail line, which was inaugurated Saturday, is a part of this.

The India-Nepal relationship took a nose dive in 2020 after the previous K.P.S. Oli government issued a new political map of Nepal, which included areas disputed with India — Kalapani, Lipulekh, and Limpiyadhura.

Deuba, who heads the Nepali Congress party, is regarded as a close friend of India, and New Delhi expects him to maintain a balance in Nepal’s ties with India as well as China.

Last week, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi undertook a visit to Nepal after his trip to India.

During his three-day trip, Deuba will also call upon Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
