Nepal President Bidhya Devi Bhandari meets PM Modi to hold bilateral talks

Nepal President Bidhya Devi Bhandari met Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj in Delhi on Tuesday to hold bilateral talks. It is expected that both the countries will seek to explore ways to step up cooperation between the close neighbours whose ties faced some strains following the agitation by the Madhesi community last year. Earlier this morning, President Bhandari accorded a ceremonial reception at the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan with her delegation. President Bhandari landed in New Delhi on Monday to start her five-day visit.
