The Heads of State of India, the United States of America and Switzerland have extended best wishes to the Government of Nepal and all Nepalis on the occasion of the Constitution Day.

India and Nepal are bound together by not only shared geography, but also by history, culture, civilisation and people to people ties. Our ever expanding partnership today spans across diverse sectors. We stand committed to continuing our close cooperation with Nepal for the development and prosperity of our people, read the statement.

I am confident our partnership will continue to expand as we work towards shared priorities.”
