New Delhi, Feb 2 (ANI): Nepal President Ram Baran Yadav, who is currently in India on a ten-day state visit, today met External Affairs Minister SM Krishna.

Talking to reporters after meeting, Krishna said the meeting took place to discuss the peace process between the two countries.

"We discussed some aspects of other relationship between the two countries and we underlined that peace process should go on in Nepal and multi party democracy must be given a chance to succeed," said Krishna.

The Nepalese government is going through tough times since the last seven months, after the resignation of Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal. The Nepalese Parliament failed to find a successor even after 16 rounds of votes.

Earlier, Yadav said he was hopeful that the political disturbances in his country would soon subside.

"Everything is under control. We are in peace talks so there is no problem. We will come out of this problem," he added.

He will also meet Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, Home Minister P. Chidambaram, Defence Minister A K Antony, Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

On February 4, President Yadav will visit the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research in Chandigarh, where he will be the chief guest of the convocation ceremony of the institute.

Dr. Yadav will return to Kathmandu on February 5.

This is President Yadav's second visit to India after assuming office in July 2008. It has been organized even as Nepal reels under political uncertainty. (ANI)
