Security and border management would be the focus of the three day home secretary level talks between India and Nepal that will begin in Kathmandu on Saturday.
The Indian delegation would be led by Home Secretary RK Singh and comprise 13 senior officials from home and external affairs ministries and states bordering Nepal.
“While India is committed to capacity building of Nepal security forces, it would also request Nepalese side to address India’s security concerns since we share an open border,” said a release issued by the Indian embassy here.
It added that India would continue to provide assistance to Nepal’s security agencies based on requirements.
During his visit Singh will also call on the Nepal home minister.
In the last home secretary level talks held in New Delhi in January 2012, both sides had agreed on greater cooperation in combating terrorism, arms smuggling, insurgency, smuggling of fake currency, human trafficking and illegal trade of banned drugs.
