Indian foreign secretary arrives in Kathmandu

     Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao who arrived here on a two-day visit, will meet President Ram Baran Yadav and Foreign Minister Sujata Koirala today. Nirupama Rao's visit is aimed at working out the strategy for implementation of the 34-point agreement between Nepal and India signed during Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal's India visit, last month. Nirupama will hold official talks with her Nepali counterpart Gyan Chandra Acharya for the same. She will also meet Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal, Foreign Secretary Gyan Chandra Acharya and leaders of various political parties, including opposition Maoist chief Prachanda. New Delhi is sending a high-level official to Nepal at a time when the constitution-drafting and peace process has been stalled due to differences among major political parties. This is Nirupama Rao's first visit to Nepal after being appointed Foreign Secretary on July 31. She will also visit Pashupatinath temple and offer her prayers.
