Minister Thapa also requested the re-routing of 300 trucks at the Raxaul border in his meeting with External Affairs Minister Swaraj. Minister Swaraj said India has no issues about re-routing, provided border infrastructure in Nepal's other crossing points is ready to handle the volume of cargo.

According to Minister Thapa, his visit has put Nepal-India ties on the right track by clarifying the two sides. He also gave leaders in India confidence that the Nepal government will move ahead to resolve their internal issues through talks and consensus.
