Nepal Prime Minister KP Oli arrived in New Delhi on Friday on a three-day visit to India. The visiting leader was accorded a ceremonial reception at the Rashtrapati Bhavan this morning, where he was welcomed by President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He also paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi at Raj Ghat. Oli’s visit is in line with the tradition of a Nepalese premier visiting India on his first overseas trip.
Ahead of his visit, Oli had said his visit would mainly focus on implementing past agreements signed between Nepal and India, rather than signing new ones. “We want to maintain trustful (ties) with India and clear any suspicion in the bilateral relations,” Oli had said.
Oli took charge as Nepal’s prime minister for the second time in February.
