Nepal has termed Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal's successful visit to India and signing of key agreements as the biggest achievement of the coalition government during its 100 days in power.

The PM's visit has been instrumental in strengthening bilateral ties between Nepal and India and expanding cooperation between the two countries, said Minister for Information and Communication Shanker Pokharel.

The signing of the new trade treaty has paved way for more exports from Nepal to India, increased assistance in infrastructure development, rise in number of scholarships to Nepalese students, and creating conducive atmosphere for Indian investors are the big achievements of the visit, the minister also the government's spokesman said.

Nepal has achieved three important things simultaneously: converting the country into a republic by abolishing monarchy, adopting federal structure and successfully bringing the Maoist rebels into politics by ending the decade long war, the minister claimed.

The government is committed to take the peace process to a logical conclusion through national consensus and draft the new constitution on the basis of dialogue, consensus and collaboration, he said, in a statement issued on Sunday.

Nepal government has succeeded in improving the security situation by implementing a special security plan to control criminal activities, he added.
