In the interaction organised by the Nepal Study Center and Dindayal Study Center of the University, he further noted, "Misunderstanding can also emerge in the close ties; dispute can also surface between the neighbors. Such issues should be sorted out through the medium of dialogue".

Former Minister for Foreign Affairs Dr Mahat argued that the bilateral relations between Nepal and India should be further strengthened based on mutual trust and understanding.
