KATHMANDU (PTI): Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat will arrive in Kathmandu on a four-day official visit to Nepal on March 28 during which he is scheduled to call on the country's top leadership and hold talks on stepping up bilateral defence cooperation.

Rawat will meet President Bidya Devi Bhandari, Prime Minister Prachanda, Defence Minister Bal Krishna Khand and his Nepali counterpart General Rajendra Chhetri during his visit from March 28 to 31.

"This will be a regular visit as there is a practice of paying visit by the chief of the Army Staff of Nepal and India to each other's country shortly after assuming the post," Nepal Army spokesperson Tara Bahadur Karki said.

A special function will be organised at the President's Office where Bhandari will confer the honorary title of Nepal Army Chief on Rawat.

The army chiefs of both the countries exchange their honorary titles to mark their special relations.

Rawat, who became the chief of the Indian Army on December 31 last year, will also visit the Indian pension paying camps in Pokhara and Muktinath areas, where Nepal Army has established its high-altitude military warfare training centre.
