Prime Minister Modi and Nepalese Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba today inked eight pacts, including on cooperation in countering drug trafficking, in favor of India and Nepal.
The pacts were signed after comprehensive talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Nepalese counterpart Sher Bahadur Deuba on strategic bilateral and regional issues.
“Had a positive meeting reviewing the gamut of our partnership,”
Modi said at a joint press event with Deuba and assured him of India’s commitment towards overall growth and development of the Himalayan nation.
Deuba arrived here yesterday on a four-day visit, his first foreign trip after assuming office in June this year.
On his arrival, Deuba was accorded a ceremonial welcome at Rashtrapati Bhavan, which also happens to be his stay for the time being as a guest.
