Prime Minister Imran Khan has on Monday felicitated his Nepalese counterpart Sher Bahadur Deuba on obtaining a vote of confidence in Nepal’s House of Representatives.

“Pakistan looks forward to further deepening its cordial ties with Nepal and would continue to work closely with Nepal on issues of common interest,” he said in his tweet.

Sher Bahadur Deuba was appointed as the prime minister of Nepal on July 12 after Supreme Court’s intervention. He secured 165 votes in the 275-member house on Sunday.
