Indian Ambassador to Nepal Shiv Shanker Mukherjee on Saturday called on Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala and discussed the current political situation in the country, including the ongoing peace talks with the Maoists and the issue of the rebels' arms management.
The deliberations at the Prime Minister's residence at Baluwatar focussed on the Nepal government-Maoist talks and the arms management, Indian Embassy sources said.
The fourth round of the peace talks were postponed on October 20 as the two sides failed to reach an agreement on the modality of arms management.
Earlier on Tuesday, Maoist Chairman Prachanda had met Mukherjee at the Indian Embassy and discussed the political situation.
The Indian envoy is leaving for New Delhi on Saturday in connection with the week-long visit to India from on Sunday by Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister KP Sharma Oli.
The Ambassador met Oli at the latter's residence on Saturday and held discussions about his trip, the sources said.
