Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat will arrive here on a four-day official visit to Nepal on March 28 during which he is scheduled to call on the country's top leadership and hold talks on stepping up bilateral defence cooperation. Rawat will meet President Bidya Devi Bhandari, Prime Minister Prachanda, Defence Minister Bal Krishna Khand and his Nepali counterpart General Rajendra Chhetri during his visit from March 28 to 31, Kathmandu Post reported. A special function will be organised at the President's Office where Bhandari will confer the honorary chief title on Rawat, the report said. The army chiefs of both the countries have a tradition of exchanging their honorary titles to mark their special relations. Rawat, who became the chief of the Indian Army on December 31 last year, will also visit the Indian pension paying camps in Pokhara and Muktinath areas.
