Muscat: Nepal and the Sultanate of Oman have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on establishing a bilateral consultation mechanism between their ministries of foreign affairs, according to the Nepal Embassy in Muscat.

The MoU was signed in Muscat, on the occasion of the official visit of the Prime Minister of Nepal, Sher Bahadur Deuba, in Oman.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs, Krishna Bahadur Mahara, witnessed the signing ceremony.

The Ambassador of Nepal to Oman, Sharmila Parajuli Dhakal, and the head of the West Asia Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Oman, Shiekh Hilah Marhoon Al Mammari signed the MoU on behalf of the respective governments.



As Nepal and the Sultanate of Oman have been marking the 40th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral relations this year, the conclusion of the MoU reflects the determination of the two governments to enhance and activate different fields of cooperation, particularly on economic, cultural, technological, scientific and educational relations, the embassy of Nepal in Muscat said in a statement.

The memorandum of understanding provides that bilateral meetings will be organised on an annual basis or as deemed necessary, alternately in Muscat and in Kathmandu.

The MoU comes into force from the date of its signature for a period of five years and is automatically renewable for similar periods.
