Army Chief General MM Naravane has been conferred the honorary rank of General of the Nepali Army by President Bidya Devi Bhandari in Kathmandu. He was honoured at a special ceremony at the President's official residence 'Shital Niwas' in Kathmandu yesterday. He was also presented with a sword and scroll during the function. The ceremony was attended by the Prime Minister of Nepal K.P. Sharma Oli, Indian Ambassador Vinay M. Kwatra and other senior officials of both the countries.

Following the ceremony, General Naravane called on the President of Nepal. He was accompanied by Ambassador Vinay M. Kwatra. During the meeting, General Naravane conveyed his gratitude for the honour bestowed upon him and also discussed measures to further enhance bilateral cooperation.

The practice follows a seven decade old tradition of conferring Army Chiefs of each other's country with the honorary title.

Earlier in the morning, General Naravane laid a wreath and paid homage to the martyrs at the Bir Smarak Martyr’s Memorial in the capital. On behalf of the Indian Government, he presented medical equipment for two field hospitals of the Nepalese Army. It includes equipment such as X-Ray machines, computed radiography systems, ICU ventilators and ambulances.
