  • India-Nepal, time to turn the page

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Nepal yesterday for a two-day visit aiming to reset strained relations between India and its small northern neighbour.

On Friday, Modi had offered prayers and played a musical instrument at the 20th century Janaki temple in Janakpur in Nepal.

"Recognising the vibrant people to people contacts and friendly bilateral ties, the two Prime Ministers directed the respective officials to expand cooperation in civil aviation sector, including early technical discussion on additional air entry routes to Nepal by respective technical teams".

He also said that the two sides had agreed to an informal timeline to discuss all matters by September this year.

Following the meeting, Modi reportedly said that "all misunderstandings with Nepal are over".

The two leaders also discussed the implementation of various India assisted projects in Nepal and chose to bridge the implementation gap in some of the projects, the foreign secretary said.

Addressing the function, Modi said India was ready to become a "sherpa" for the development endeavours of Nepal and a detailed project study for rail links between the Indian border and Kathmandu had started.

The two prime ministers also laid the foundation stone of the 900 MW Arun III hydroelectric power plant project in Kathmandu, reported Reuters.

The Ramayan Circuit Bus Route connects Janakpur, 225 km from capital Kathmandu, to Ayodhya.

"An auspicious start to Day 2 in Nepal! This land is spiritual and serene", Modi wrote, and also posted several images from the temple.

The Indian leader described his visit as "that of a pilgrim rather than as a Prime Minister" and participated in the civic reception bestowed upon him by Janakpur Sub-Metropolitan City at the Rangabhumi Maidan. "It shows the importance India attaches to the historical ties".
