Sushma Swaraj arrives in Nepal for Saarc meeting

New Delhi, March 16 (IANS) India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday arrived in Nepal for Saarc foreign ministerial level meeting scheduled for Thursday.

“EAM @sushmaswaraj arrives in Pokhara (Nepal). Is received by Nepal Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Kamal Thapa,” external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup said in a tweet.

Sushma Swaraj is also expected to meet Pakistan’s foreign affairs advisor Sartaj Aziz, who is already in Nepal to attend the meeting, Pakistani media said.

Swaraj and Aziz are likely to discuss the delayed foreign secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan, which were postponed due to a terror attack on Pathankot air base.
