New Delhi, May 10 (IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday commenced his visit to Nepal at the invitation of  his Nepal counterpart KP Sharma Oli.

This will his third visit to Nepal as Prime Minister.

"It reflects the high priority India, and personally I attach to our age-old, close and friendly ties with Nepal," said Modi.

"My visit closely follows the State Visit of Prime Minister Oli to India last month. These high-level and regular interactions reflect my government's commitment to the 'Neighbourhood First' policy, in consonance with the motto of ‘SabkaSaath, SabkaVikas’," the PM said.

Together, the two countries have completed several bilateral connectivity and development projects in the last few years, and have initiated transformational initiatives for the benefit of both.

Prime Minister Oli and Modi will have 'wide-ranging discussions' in New Delhi on issues of mutual interest.

"In addition to Kathmandu, I am also looking forward to visiting Janakpur and Muktinath. Both these places attract a large number of pilgrims every year. They are living testimony to the ancient and strong cultural and religious ties between the peoples of India and Nepal," said the Indian PM.

As Nepal enters a new era of consolidating gains of democracy and achieving rapid economic growth and development, India will continue to remain a steadfast partner of Government of Nepal to implement its vision of ‘Samriddha Nepal, Sukhi Nepali', said PM Modi.
