Admiral Philip S Davidson, Commander of the United States Indo-Pacific Command, also called on Defense Minister Ishwor Pokharel and discussed ways to strengthen the partnership between the two countries' armies.
The commander's remarks came amid growing Chinese assertiveness in the strategic Indo-Pacific region.
During his meeting with Pokharel, Davidson appreciated the Nepal Army's contribution to the world peace, saying it has "helped establish its positive image across the world."
Pokharel lauded the joint military trainings being held by Nepal and the US. He urged the US government to assist Nepal in the skill development sector of Nepal Army, upgradation of Birendra Peace Operations Training Center and logistics required for disaster management.
Davidson, commander of America's oldest and largest military command based in Hawaii who arrived in Kathmandu on Thursday, also held discussions with Nepal Army Chief General Purna Chandra Thapa on cooperation between the two armies.
"Such types of high level visits of the two countries will further strengthen military ties between the two countries," Nepal Army said in a statement.
Admiral Davidson returned home on Friday wrapping up his two-day official visit to Nepal, it said.
