Kathmandu 2 Feb , –

Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj returned home on Friday, wrapping up her two-day ‘goodwill’ visit to Nepal. She had arrived in Kathmandu on Thursday afternoon.

During her stay in Nepal, the Indian minister held meetings with various political leaders including CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli, who most likely will be the next Prime Minister, CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and leaders of Madhes-based parties.

She also held a meeting with Prime Minister and Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba and paid a courtesy call on President Bidya Devi Bhandari.

She hailed the leaders for successfully holding the elections in Nepal and discussed enhancing bilateral cooperation and taking the age-old and historical partnership between Nepal and India forward.

Swaraj had said that the Nepal-India relationship is of such a nature that no excuse was needed to visit each other, according to a tweet by Indian Embassy in Nepal. Another tweet mentioned that she had come to Nepal to visit friends and her visit was not guided by any agendas.

Swaraj’s visit comes at a time when Nepal is preparing to form a new government under the Left Alliance—comprising CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Centre)—following successful conduct of three tier elections after the promulgation of new constitution.

After landing in Kathmandu, Minister Sushma Swaraj held a one-to-one meeting with CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli for more than an hour before delegation-level talks between top UML leaders and officials from India at Hotel Soaltee on Thursday evening
