Kathmandu, Aug 8(ANI): Nepalese Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal has assured Parliament that his government will not sign any agreement with India without taking them into confidence.

Madhav Kumar is visiting India for a five days goodwill visit starting from August 18, which will be his first official visit after assuming the office of the Prime Minister.

Sources said Madhav Kumar told the Parliamentary Committee on International Relations and Human Rights that he would not sign any deal with New Delhi that would give rise to disagreement among political parties in Kathmandu.

He also urged the members not to harbor any suspicion about his goodwill visit to India.

No new treaty on water resources will be signed with India without reaching political consensus at home, Madhav Kumar assured Parliament.

He said priority would be given to the implementation of agreements, which are signed before on time bound basis than signing new one.

Madhav Kumar informed the House that the issues related to water resources, Nepal-India Friendship Treaty of 1950, bilateral trade and Indian investment in Nepal would be on his agenda. (ANI)
