PM, DPM at odds in Rinpoche cremation row

SANTOSH GHIMIRE
KATHMANDU, July 25: The cabinet meeting on Friday could not take any decision on whether or not to allow the cremation in Kathmandu of the Guru Shamar Rinpoche as demanded by his followers, although Prime Minister Sushil Koirala himself was positive toward the demand.

The cabinet meeting couldn’t take any decision as Deputy Prime Minister Bamdev Gautam strongly opposed the idea of allowing the final rites of the Rinpoche to be held in the country. [More]

Indian foreign minister Swaraj arrives in Kathmandu on a three-day visit

KATHMANDU, July 25:
Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj arrived in Kathmandu on Friday evening on a three-day official visit to Nepal.

She will be co-chairing a meeting of the Joint Commission, which is an apex body that reviews the entire gamut of bilateral relations, being held on Saturday after a gap of almost two and a half decades.

In her brief remarks to media upon her arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport, Swaraj said her visit to Nepal within two months after the formation of new government in India reflects high priority that India attaches to Nepal. “My visit is taking place within two months after I assumed office as external affairs minister. This is a testimony, how important Nepal is to India,” she said.   [More]
