Kathmandu, June 15 (RSS): Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health and Population, Upendra Yadav, has insisted on the need for further promoting ayurved and using it in treatment of new diseases.
In his address to an international seminar organised by Nepal Ayurved Research and Training Center here today, he called for support of India and China towards that end. Ayurved specialists and experts from Nepal, India and China are present in the event.
