Indo-Nepal ties ‘unshakeable like Himalayas’: PM Modi

India and Nepal’s “ever-strengthening” friendship and closeness will benefit the entire humanity amid the kind of global conditions that are emerging, PM Modi said in a special 20-minute address in Lumbini on the sidelines of the 2566th Buddha Jayanti celebrations. He added that ties between the two countries are unshakeable like the Himalayas.

Modi, who was in Lumbini on Buddha Purnima at the invitation of his counterpart Sher Bahadur Deuba, made the remarks while addressing an international conference on Buddhism.

The PM’s visit also saw a bilateral meeting between the two leaders following which India and Nepal signed six agreements.
