Prachanda was quoted as saying earlier this week that he believed a new history will be created with his visit to India. “This time, I believe, Nepal will achieve something new from the visit. Nepal-India relations will be taken to a new height,” he said in an interview.
Nepal foreign ministry sources in Kathmandu said the visit will take place from May 31 to June 3 and the ministry will make a formal announcement on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Nepalese ambassador to India Shankar Prasad Sharma called on minister for external affairs S Jaishankar in New Delhi this week and discussed Prachanda’s upcoming visit.
