Kathmandu: Nepal President Bidhya Devi Bhandari is likely to visit India in August. Talks are on between the two nations to reschedule her visit after her trip in May was cancelled because of political turmoil in Nepal and also because the Cabinet did not approve it.

She was invited by Indian counterpart President Pranab Mukherjee.

Indian Ambassador to Nepal Ranjit Rae has said that President Bhandari’s India visit would be fixed soon, reports the Kathmandu Post.

After her visit, reports say that President Mukherjee will be visiting Nepal.

According to reports, officials in Kathmandu have said that New Delhi has proposed that President Bhandari undertake her state visit before the fourth Joint Commission meeting, and following it conclusion, facilitate a reciprocal visit by President Mukherjee. (ANI)
