Indian Army chief visit a positive step to repair ties with Nepal

As Indian Army chief General MM Naravane is all set to arrive on a three-day official visit on November 4, all eyes are now on the outcome of his visit, mostly the status of the boundary dispute between Nepal and India, which has emerged an irritant in the bilateral relations since November last year, and how the military, security and strategic ties between Nepal and India will move on.

Though Naravane's visit is a customary one—in line with the long-standing tradition of receiving the honorary title of the chief of Nepal Army—a section of the Kathmandu-based intelligentsia has found a new perspective, given the frayed ties and Naravane’s statement a few months ago.

Back in May, Naravane said that Nepal was objecting to India’s opening of the road link via Lipulekh at the behest of “someone else”. Though he did not name any country, it was apparent that he was alluding to China.
