Nepal on Friday said it was working to remove 'roadblocks' in signing of the SAARC connectivity agreements, which were stalled by Pakistan on the pretext that they have not completed their "internal processes".

"There are some roadblocks and we are working to clear them," Nepal foreign minister Mahendra Bahadur Pandey told PTI.

He said his country will make all efforts to ensure that the connectivity pacts, including a motor vehicle agreement, are inked before the SAARC declaration on Thursday.

After the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summit, the leaders will be going to Dwarika's Resort at Dhulikhel tomorrow for a Retreat Session which will be followed by a lunch hosted by Prime Minister Sushil Koirala.

After that, the leaders will be back SAARC venue for the concluding session.
