India won't change Nepal policy: Minister for Foreign Affairs
Hundreds of flag-waving supporters mobbed Indian prime minister-elect Narendra Modi (above) as he arrived in New Delhi, smiling and flashing victory signs after his party's crushing poll victory.

KATHMANDU - Minister for Foreign Affairs Mahendra Bahadur Pandey has said he is convinced that the new Indian government to be formed soon would not change its policy on Nepal.

Speaking with reporters at Tribhuvan International Airport on Saturday upon his arrival from South Korea, Minister Pandey said though the new government may change its internal policy, it will not change the course of policy on Nepal.

He also hoped that given the nature of close relations with the neighbouring country, the ties between the two countries will strengthen in days to come under BJP's leadership.

Our relations with India will move upward trajectory in the days to come, said the minister.

Pandey also informed that South Korea is going to provide some logistic assistance for the 18th Saarc Summit to be held in Nepal.
