    0

    KATHMANDU: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Nepal on Sunday to try to speed up progress on power agreements while also aiming to counter rival giant China’s influence in the region. Modi flew into Kathmandu for talks on strengthening trade ties including harnessing Nepal’s vast hydropower resources in the first visit by an Indian prime minister to the Himalayan nation in 17 years. Modi said the two-day visit “highlights the high priority that my government attaches to our relations with Nepal.” Nepal’s Prime Minister Sushil Koirala greeted Modi at Kathmandu’s international airport, where he received a 19-gun salute while an army band played, an AFP reporter said.
