Call for good neighbourly relations

Kathmandu, September 7:

Minister for Information and Communications Krishna Bahadur Mahara today said the government would bolster the ties with India and China.

Inaugurating a discussion programme on 'Nepal-India Relation, Friendship and Development', Mahara termed the relation between people of Nepal and India exemplary.

Stating that the late Indian leader Nirmala Deshpande had helped maintain social, cultural and economic relations

between the two countries, minister Mahara said her works should be given continuity.

Mahara said the historical, scientific and technical aspects of the Koshi embankments should be studied. Without blaming each other for the Koshi disaster, we should resolve the Koshi problem together, he added.

At the programme, a member of an Indian constitutional delegation and lawmaker of Rajya Sabha Dr K Keshav Rao said India wants to see peace, stability and progress in Nepal.
