New York [US], September 26 (ANI): External Affairs Minister (EAM) S Jaishankar met with his new Nepalese counterpart Dr Narayan Khadka in New York and agreed to take the special relationship forward.

"Pleased to welcome my new Nepali colleague, Dr Narayan Khadka. Agreed that we should work together closely to take our special relationship forward," EAM Jaishankar tweeted.

This is the first meeting between the two ministers. Last week, Jaishankar had congratulated Khadka on his appointment as Nepal's Foreign Minister.
