At the cordial invitation of the Foreign Secretary Mr. Bharat Raj Paudyal, the Foreign Secretary of India Harsh Vardhan Shringla is paying a two-day official visit to Nepal from November 26 to 27 2020.

Resuming the high-level visit and exchanges between India and Nepal. The visit is in keeping with the tradition of regular high-level exchanges between the two neighbours and the priority India attaches to its relations with Nepal, India's Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said in its statement.

Shringla's visit comes after two back-to-back high-level visits from New Delhi by Indian Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane in November and Research and Analysis Wing head Samant Goel in October.

During the visit, Shringla will meet his counterpart and other Nepalese dignitaries to discuss the wide ranging bilateral cooperation between the two countries, the MEA said in a statement.

This will be the first visit of the Foreign Secretary to Nepal since he presumed charge.

As soon as Shringla lands in Kathmandu, he will hold delegation level talks with his Nepali counterpart, Bharat Raj Poudyal, during which they will discuss wide ranging areas of cooperation between Nepal and India.

The Indian Foreign Secretary is scheduled to call on President Bidhya Devi Bhandari, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, Foreign Minister Pradeep Gyawali, and leader of the opposition party Sher Bahadur Deuba, among others.

He will also hand over Covid-19 related support to the government of Nepal..
