10 June, 2016 | arjun baral | 550 Views | comments

India has taken Nepal’s request for loan waiver on its military hardware procurement in the past positively, according to Nepali officials who attended the twelfth meeting of Nepal-India Bilateral Consultative Group (BCG) on Security that concluded here on Thursday.

During the meeting, the Nepali side requested India for the supply of military hardware and a helicopter, officials said.
“The BCG discussion covered issues relating to mutual security concerns and defence training,” the Nepali Embassy in New Delhi said in a statement. The BCG discussed about the issues relating to mutual security concerns as well as defence and training requirements.
Cooperation in disaster management was another agenda of the meet. The need for upgradation of the Nepal Army’s disaster management equipment was taken up.
The NA successfully coordinated rescue and relief operations in the aftermath
of the earthquakes last year. A needs assessment team from India visited Nepal from January 27 to 23 last year to discuss natural disasters and vulnerabilities.
The Nepali Delegation also held interactions with the National Disaster Response Force of India. It concentrated on how the Nepal Army could increase its disaster response capabilities. At the discussion in National Defence College of India, defence-related issues were taken up.
The two sides have agreed to organise the 10th Surya Kiran Joint Military Exercise at the battalion level in Kathmandu in October-November. Another agenda was the training of Army officers in India.
Meetings of the consultative groups are held annually but the 12th meeting was delayed due to political reasons. Issues related to security and terrorism will figure in the upcoming meeting.
The Nepali delegation was led by Prakash Subedi, joint-secretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Indian delegation was led by Abhaya Thakur, joint-secretary at the Ministry of External Affairs.
