    Nepal PM begins state visit to India, aims to strengthen ties

    Feb 19, Kathmandu: Nepal's prime minister Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli has begun a six-day state visit to India on Friday which comes after months of bitter relations between the two neighbours.

    The first foreign trip as prime minister - indicates that relations between the two nations are getting back on track, experts have said.

    Relations deteriorated after India asked Nepal to amend the constitution adopted last September to address the grievances of historically marginalised groups such as Madhesis, media reports said.

    The prime minister has also said that he was for the restoration of the trust. “That's most important ... I would say the greatest benefit would be the restoration of trust and mutual confidence."

    The visit comes a week after a nearly five-month blockade on the India-Nepal border was lifted.
