    Background: King Birendra of Nepal arrived in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday (23 May) for the start of a four day official visit to Malaysia. The visit is the last leg of an extensive East Asian tour made by the King in an attempt to improve Nepal's relations with countries in the region.

    SYNOPSIS: King Birendra said he hoped his visit would add a new chapter to the existing friendly relations between Nepal and Malaysia.

    The King, accompanied by his wife Queen Aishwarya and Foreign Minister Krishna Raj Aryal, was received on arrival by the Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Hussein Onn.

    The visit follows state tours to China, Japan and the Philippines.

    Malaysian officials said the King was personally interested in promoting further cooperation with Malaysia and was keen to have a first hand look at various development projects in the country.

    The royal couple will also pay a courtesy call on the Malaysian King Yang Dipertuan Agung.

    At a recent ceremony in Katmandu, King Birendra said Nepal and Malaysia shared many things in common....both being developing countries and guided by the principles of non-alignment.

    During talks between the Nepalese Foreign Minister and his Malaysian counterpart Tengku Ahmad Rithauddeen, the question of enhanced economic cooperation between the two countries is expected to be raised.

    Nepal has already offered to sell Malaysia rice, jute, and nicotine - free tobacco while Malaysia has offered direct export of rubber and rubber products.
