Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold delegation level talks with Nepalese Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli in New Delhi today. Both the leaders will discuss the issues of mutual interest. 

Mr Modi and Mr Oli will jointly inaugurate Integrated Check Post (ICP) Birgunj from the national capital today through remote control.
