New Delhi, Aug 13 (ANI): Visiting Nepal Foreign Minister Sujata Koirala met L K Advani, leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) here on Thursday.

On Wednesday, Koirala met Home Minister P Chidambaram.

The leaders discussed cross-border terrorism, border encroachment and other threats.

Talking to reporters here after the meeting Sujata Koirala said, "Nepal and India share lots of common interests and we had a very friendly talk. We have an open border and we spoke about security as to how it mutually benefits for both the countries and can have a proper security system on the border side."

Asked about the threat of fake currency reportedly routed through Nepal, Koirala said she would have a separate meeting with Indian authorities on the issue.

"It is a concern of everybody. Nepal wants to control our side and India will look after their side. We will have a mutual sit down meeting from both the sides and we will solve every problem what we have," she added.

Since her arrival Koirala has been holding meetings with India's top leadership seeking support in taking the peace process forward.

Nepal's Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal is also scheduled to visit India this month.

She will attend various events in Delhi today and will leave for Kathmandu on Friday afternoon. (ANI)
