PM Modi's Third Nepal Visit: Five Reasons Why His Visit Is Important

Modi’s third visit to Nepal within a period of three years shows his commitment to the neighborhood first policy and his tact to handle foreign policies. India has an open border with Nepal which permits passport-free entry. Nepal is also an intermediary between the Chinese- occupied Tibet and India, and any sort of development in Nepal will directly have an impact on India’s security.

Modi will emphasise that Nepal should also fulfil its promises with regard to the forest clearances and land acquisitions etc., in his meeting with Oli. Many of such promises have been the reason for delays in the previous projects. Modi’s visit, will include talks on finalising agricultural partnership, under which India will be sharing its experience on organic farming, new initiatives of soil health cards, etc. Moreover, power cooperation will be another major area of discussion.
