India's Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla will arrive Nepalese capital Kathmandu on November 25th on a two-day official visit to Nepal during which he would hold talks with his Nepalese counterpart Bharat Raj Paudyal and discuss wide ranging areas of bilateral cooperation. The border problems between the two countries are likely to figure during the talks.

Shringla is visiting at the invitation of Foreign Secretary Paudyal, the first high level visit after the border problems arose between the neighboring countries since the beginning of the year.

This will be a continuation of the regular exchange of high level visits between the two friendly neighbours, the Nepalese Foreign Ministry said.

"On the first day of the visit, the Foreign Secretaries of the two countries will hold bilateral meeting and discuss wide ranging areas of cooperation between Nepal and India," the ministry said in a statement here.

Problems between Nepal and India would be resolved through dialogue said Nepalese PM

Earlier this month, Indian Army chief Gen. M M Naravane travelled to Nepal on a three-day visit during which he held talks with Nepal's top leadership and discussed bilateral relations. During the visit, he called on Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli, who is also the Defence Minister of Nepal.  Nepalese prime Minister Oli told him that problems between Nepal and India would be resolved through dialogue.

Gen Naravane's three-day visit to Nepal was largely aimed at resetting bilateral ties that came under severe strain following a bitter border row between the two countries.
