NEW DELHI, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- India Wednesday hailed its bilateral relations with Nepal and said that it would continue to help in the socio-economic development of the Himalayan nation "in its own interest."
"India attaches the highest priority to further strengthening its bilateral relations with Nepal in every sphere. As a close friend and neighbour, India will continue to do its best to assist Nepal in its socio-economic development," Indian President Pranab Mukherjee said in the national capital.
Mukherjee's statement came as he welcomed visiting Nepalese President Ram Baran Yadav at Rashtrapati Bhavan, his official estate.
Reiterating that India's relations with Nepal are deep rooted and unique with no parallel, Mukherjee said that New Delhi will support Kathmandu in its own interest. "It has always been India's endeavour to support peace, stability and prosperity in Nepal, in accordance with their wishes," he added.
Yadav on Monday began a five-day official visit to India on the invitation of President Mukherjee. He arrived first in Varanasi, located in middle Ganges valley of North India, for attending a special convocation of the Banaras Hindu University.
