Nepal-India panel meet finalises five issues for discussion

KATHMANDU: The first meeting of the Eminent Persons Group (EPG) comprising diplomats from both Nepal and India has finalised for future discussions five issues, including the 1950 Indo-Nepal Treaty of Peace and Friendship signed between the two neighbours — often termed by Nepal as “mother of all treaties” with India

The five issues finalised for future discussions by the two-day meeting here of the Eminent Persons Group-Nepal-India Relations (EPG-NIR) include bilateral political ties, government-to-government relations, economic exchanges, developmental cooperation and social and cultural aspects of the India-Nepal relations.

On Tuesday, the eight-member EPG-NIR, which comprises four members from each country, agreed to review all aspects of bilateral ties, said Bhekh Bahadur Thapa, EPG co-chair from the Nepal side.
