Oli’s visit will be highly successful: Indian envoy

Kathmandu, Feb 17 (IANS) Nepal Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli’s upcoming visit to India will be highly successful and bilateral relations will be normalised after the visit, Indian Ambassador to Nepal Ranjit Rae said on Wednesday.

Oli will be accorded a warm welcome in India, and the visit would further strengthen the relationship between Nepal and India, Rae said ahead of the visit that starts on February 19.

Leading a delegation of over 100 members, Oli leaves for a six-day official visit to India on Friday.

Bilateral ties were strained since September last year when Nepal promulgated its new constitution, and India expressed reservations over some of the provisions.

Oli will hold political talks with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other leaders that will be instrumental in helping clear the misunderstanding, Rae said.

Pointing out that India gives high priority to Oli’s visit, the Indian ambassador said the visit would help resolve the differences that emerged between the two countries of late.

“Time and again, we have seen ups and downs in the relations but we have successfully resolved these hiccups through talks,” the Indian envoy said.
