The first meeting of the Eminent Persons’ Group (EPG) of Nepal-India concluded here Wednesday.
The two-day meeting inaugurated by Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister Kamal Thapa on Monday discussed various issues of Nepal-India relations which went sour following the promulgation of new constitution in Nepal in September last year.
The group was constituted with an aim of ending the misunderstanding between the leaders of the two nations. The EPG has four members from each country (Nepal and India).
The Nepali team was led by former foreign Minister Dr Bhekh Bahadur Thapa while the Indian side was led by Bhagat Singh Koshyari, the former chief minister of Uttarakhand and noted BJP leader.
Other members included in the EPG are former minister Nilambar Acharya, Surya Nath Upadhyaya (former CIAA chief),and Rajan Bhattarai from Nepal while former ambassador to Nepal Jayanta Prasad, Prof Mahendra P Lama and BC Uprety are from the Indian side.
The meeting was expected to study and review the past bilateral treaties and agreements reached between the two neighbours.
However, the meeting was yet to reach a conclusion by the time this news was prepared.
