KATHMANDU (PTI): The army chiefs of India and Nepal have discussed issues of mutual concern and ways to step up military-to-military cooperation.

Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat, who is on a four-day visit to Nepal, called on his counterpart Rajendra Chhetri at the Army headquarters in Kathmandu on Wednesday.

Issues of mutual concern and bilateral relations were discussed in the meeting, according to a statement issued by the Directorate of Public Relations.

During a special function, India gifted seven horses to Nepal. Rawat handed over a stallion light breed, two brood mares, two gelds and two donkey stallions to Chhetri.

The Indian Army Chief is in Nepal currently to receive the honorary general title of Nepal Army, Himalayan Times reported.

Rawat had also held a meeting with other senior officials of the Nepal Army. He also laid a wreath at the Bir Memorial at the Army Pavilion.

The Indian Army Chief was conferred with the honorary general of Nepal Army by president Bidya Devi Bhandari at a special function at the Rastrapati Bhawan held later.

The visiting Indian Army Chief will also call on Prime Minister Prachanda.
