Nepal and India have a historic tradition of conferring the honorary title to each other’s army chief since 1950.

He became the 18th Indian Army Chief to be conferred with the title.

General Naravane is the senior-most Indian official to visit Nepal following the countries’ boundary dispute since last November after placing disputed territories in its new political map.

It was India’s road construction to the Lipulekh area at 17,000 feet that sparked the diplomatic row between India and Nepal as Kathmandu claimed the area to be its territory.

The road was constructed to shorten the travel time for pilgrims visiting the Kailash Mansarovar.
