Ahead of Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal’s visit to India later this week, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj met the Himalayan nation’s Foreign Minister Prakash Sharan Mahat in New Delhi on Monday.

“Preparing the ground for an important visit. EAM @SushmaSwaraj receives FM Prakash Sharan Mahat of Nepal,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.

Prime Minister Dahal, popularly called “Prachanda”, will arrive on September 15 on a three-day visit to India.

He became prime minister in early August after the ouster of K.P. Sharma Oli from the post.
