Nepali Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has made a request from President Maithripala Sirisena to reconsider the capital punishment given by Sri Lanka to a Nepali citizen Chet Bahadur Thapa (Lalitpur) for smuggling drugs into the country.

The request was made during a meeting held between the leaders who are presently in Goa to attend the BRICS- BIMSTEC Outreach Summit.

Prime Minister Kamal Dahal has also requested President Sirisena to make effective measures to control trafficking of Nepali women to the gulf countries via Sri Lanka.

On the occasion, matters relating to operating direct flights between the two countries and hosting the stalled 19th SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) Summit were also discussed.

In response, the Sri Lankan President also highlighted the need of making collective efforts to organise the SAARC Summit. He said Sri Lanka was positive towards the concerns put forth by Nepal.
