dated November 9, 1955: Indo-Nepal relations

The President, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, has expressed the hope that as a result of the visit of the King of Nepal to India the friendly and historic ties between the two countries would become unbreakable. He was speaking at a banquet on November 7 at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in honour of the King and Queen of Nepal. King Mahendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev reciprocated the sentiments expressed by the President. Among those who attended the banquet were Prime Minister Nehru, the Vice President, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, members of the Union Cabinet, Yuvraj Karan Singh, Sadar-i-Riyasat of Jammu and Kashmir, Mrs. Indira Gandhi and the three Service chiefs. Extending a hearty welcome on behalf of the Government and people of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad said that the relations between Nepal and India were very old. These were based not only on geographical contiguity, but also on the community of thought and culture. "We all desire that the friendly ties and the mutual goodwill may last for ever and the bonds of friendship may become stronger than ever." Later, King Mahendra and the Queen were given a civic reception by the citizens of Delhi at the historic Red Fort. Speaking on the occasion, the King paid a tribute to the contribution made by India to the cause of peace.
