The fourth meeting of the India-Nepal Joint Commission, the top bilateral body at the Foreign Minister-level, will be held on October 26-27 in New Delhi, an official said on Wednesday.

The Joint Commission meeting on October 27 will be followed by a Foreign Secretary-level meeting, Nepal’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement here.

During the recent state visit of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ to India, both sides had agreed to hold the meeting “at the earliest”.

Foreign Minister Prakash Sharan Mahat and his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj will lead the respective delegations at the meeting that will review and assess all facets of bilateral relations and will give a direction to the future course, said the statement.

The meeting will also dwell upon a wide range of bilateral issues and try to find a way out, including expediting the India-funded projects and setting up of a joint mechanism at the government level to monitor progress of these projects in Nepal.
