NEW DELHI: CPN-UML chairman Jhala Nath Khanal, who is on a five-day visit to India, met Indian Home Minister P Chidambaram, Minister for External Affairs SM Krishna, CPI-M general secretary Prakash Karat and CPI general secretary AB Bardhan here today. He arrived in the Indian capital on Tuesday.

The UML boss said that both the ministers emphasised on the need of broader consensus among the political stakeholders in Nepal, and to bring the peace process to a logical conclusion.

“I was assured of all assistance for our peace process and development. Chidambaram promised measures to bolster our internal security, especially the Nepal-India border to check cross-border crimes,” he said. “It’s for the Nepali to decide how they want to resolve their political problems. India doesn’t want to meddle with Nepal’s domestic affairs,” he quoted Chidambaram as saying.
