Indian Army Chief Rawat arrives
Kathmandu: Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat arrived in Kathmandu on a three-day official visit to Nepal on Monday at the invitation of the Nepal Army.
Rawat, who arrived at the invitation of Chief of Army Staff (CoAS) Rajendra Chhetri, will be the special guest of the 'Nepal Army Day and Mahashivaratri' to be marked on Tuesday. The day coincides with the 250th anniversary of Nepal's unification led by King Prithivi Narayan Shah.
Rawat, who is also the honorary Chief of the Nepal Army, will return home on Wednesday. Rawat was conferred the honorary title on March 29, 2017. Nepal Army Chief Chhetri was also given the honorary title of the Indian Army Chief last year.
The Nepal Army said it believes that the high-level visits would help strengthen the two nations' military relations and military-political diplomacy.
