Kathmandu, March 15 (IANS) Indian Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar on Tuesday said New Delhi has great confidence in Nepal’s Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli’s decision power.
Jaishankar urged Oli to carry ahead the works upon which Nepal and India have agreed in the past but which remain stalled, The Himalayan Times reported.
