Nepal Prime Minister K.P. Oli arrived here on Friday on a three-day visit -- his first foreign trip after he returned to power in February for a second time. Oli and his wife Radika Shakya were received by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh at the airport here. Oli's first foreign visit to India after taking charge as Nepal Prime Minister keeps up with the tradition of India-Nepal ties that have of late been strained. He is scheduled to have talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and also hold delegation-level talks on Saturday.
