    Nepal’s ties with India and China are complementary

    Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is slated to visit India starting February 19th. He had been insisting that he would visit India only when all obstructions on Indo-Nepal border were cleared. Has this condition been fulfilled? If yes, while in India, what will PM Oli discuss with the Indian leadership? Can we expect something substantive to come out of it?
