Deuba leaving for India on January 10After attending Gujarat Global Summit, he will hold bilateral engagements in Delhi, officials say.
Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba is leaving for India on January 10, in his second foreign trip since he took office on July 13 this year.
The prime minister is leaving for India on January 10 to participate in the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, according to diplomatic sources in Kathmandu and New Delhi.
Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, is a biennial event conceptualised in 2003, and the 2022 event on January 10-12 is the 10th iteration.
A detailed itinerary was not immediately available but sources at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said a bilateral meeting between Prime Minister Deuba and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi is very much likely.
Deuba’s first foreing trip after he was appointed prime minister—for the fifth time on July 13—was to Glasgow of Scotland to participate in the climate change conference in November.
Deuba’s visit to Gujarat comes at a time when talks about his state visit to India were being talked about.
The visit to the southern neighbour also comes on the heels of Deuba’s comeback as a strong president of his party from the recently concluded general convention.
Deuba was appointed prime minister on July 13 following a Supreme Court order a day before in which the bench also overturned erstwhile prime minister KP Sharma Oli’s May 21 decision to dissolve the House.
