Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday had a conversation with newly-elected Nepalese Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba and extended best wishes for his new role. 

Recalling the unique and millennia-old people-to-people linkages that underpin the remarkable friendship between India and Nepal, the two prime ministers agreed to work jointly on enhancing bilateral cooperation in all areas. 

"The two leaders discussed ways to strengthen cooperation and coordination in the context of the ongoing effort against the Covid-19 pandemic," the ministry of external affairs said.

On Sunday, 75-year-old Sher Bahadur Deuba, chief of the Nepali Congress, won the confidence motion comfortably by securing 165 votes in the 275-member House of Representatives.

A total of 249 legislators participated in the voting process, and 83 of them voted against him. 

Deuba took the oath as Prime Minister on July 13 this year for a record fifth time.
