India announced new partnerships to develop the inland waterways for movement of cargo and in the agriculture sector.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday held discussions with his Nepalese counterpart KP Oli to deepen bilateral ties between the two neighbours.

Nepal shares a 1,850-kilometer (1,150-mile) open border with India, which is also the Himalayan country's largest trading partner. "I have assured Prime Minister Oli that this will continue in future", he said. "Welcoming the ongoing Final Location Survey of the three links, the two leaders agreed to expedite completion of the remaining survey work", the joint statement further added.

Earlier, the visiting dignitary received a ceremonial welcome in the Rashtrapati Bhavan as he called on President Ramnath Kovind.

The rail line is seen as a counter to China's proposal to extend Qinghai-Tibet railway beyond Shigatse and Kyirong to the Nepal border by 2020- Kyirong is only 25 km from Nepal's Rasuwagadhi border, 50 km from Kathmandu.

Mr Oli is thus in a position to have the best of both worlds regarding Nepal's ties with Beijing and New Delhi.

Oli arrived in New Delhi on Friday on a three-day visit, his first overseas tour after taking charge as Nepal's prime minister. We aim at improving waterways and railways with Nepal.

Conte rejects claim he wants Chelsea exit
Their lacklustre performance in Chelsea's first home defeat to Tottenham for 28 years hardly erased that impression. Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has paid his respects to club legend Ray Wilkins following his death earlier this week.

India's main worry is that Nepal may now lean more toward China as Oli heads a government of communist parties.

Prime Minister Modi stated that the government's vision of "Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas" is a guiding framework for India's engagement with its neighbours for a shared vision of inclusive development and prosperity.

India's indifferent response to the blockade by the United Democratic Madhesi Front had triggered speculation about New Delhi's tacit support for the protest against Nepal's Constitution for not factoring in proportional representation to the Madhesis who have Indian ancestry. In fact, India should have long learnt not to expect any special relationship with Kathmandu, but build normal friendly ties with stakes in Nepal's stability.

Nepal's Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli today asserted that Nepal had not allowed its land to be used against the sovereign interests of India and that it was firm in its resolve to maintain this. We want to create a model relationship.

"My official visit to India was significant and fruitful", Oli said at the Tribhuvan International Airport upon his arrival.

PM Oil invited PM Modi to pay a visit to Nepal at the earliest convenient time and he said,"I am hopeful that the visit will take place soon". He visited India in February 2016 during his first term.
