Press Statement by the Foreign Secretary of India after visiting Nepal

September 19, 2015

 

I visited Kathmandu for two days as the special envoy of the Prime Minister of India. I was received by the Rt. Hon'ble President of Nepal Shri Ram Baran Yadav . I also called on the Rt. Hon'ble Prime Minister of Nepal Shri Sushil Koirala and met the key political leaders including Shri K.P. Sharma Oli, Prachanda ji, Shri Sher Bahadur Deuba and the leaders of the Madhesh based political parties. 

 

India has been strongly supportive of constitution making in Nepal. We would like its completion to be an occasion for joy and satisfaction, not agitation and violence. 

 

We hope that Nepal's political leaders will display the necessary flexibility and maturity at this crucial time to ensure a durable and resilient Constitution that has broad-based acceptance.
