Indian PM Modi returns home

Kathmandu: Nepal is sensitive to India's interests and would not allow its territory to be used against India, Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli has assured his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.

"We are committed to support Prime Minister Oli's vision that Nepal should not be a land-locked country but a land- and water-linked nation", he said.

Prime Minister also visited world famous Pashupatinath temple in Kathmandu and worship Lord Shiva. "Exchanged views on strengthening views on bilateral relations", he said.

The central banks of India and Nepal are discussing the "technical issues" related to return of demontised Indian currency notes, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale today said, hoping the apex banks of the two neighbouring countries would be able to resolve it.

The Congress on Saturday alleged that PM Narendra Modi's visit to temples in Nepal is aimed at influencing voters in Karnataka where polling is being held today.

The BIMSTEC comprises seven countries - India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand and Sri Lanka.

According to the statement, both leaders "emphasised the need for regular convening of bilateral mechanisms, including Nepal-India Joint Commission at Foreign/External Affairs Ministers-level, to review the overall state of bilateral relations, and for the expeditious implementation of the economic and development cooperation projects". Mr Modi also met leaders of various political parties of Nepal.

The prime minister also inaugurated a Rs 6,000-crore Arun III project which was expected to generate 900 MW of power.

Gokhale said Nepali leaders who called on Prime Minister Modi expressed confidence that his visit to cultural places like Janakpur and Muktinath would enhance tourism.

He also greeted and interacted with people waiting at the temple premises.

PM Modi is scheduled to depart for returning to India after receiving a civic reception in Kathmandu at Rashtriya Sabha Griha.

Earlier, Kathmandu Mayor Bidya Sundar Shakya presented symbolic key of the city to Modi, which symbolises that the door to Kathmandu would always remain open to him. "It shows the importance India attaches to the historical ties".
