Kathmandu, April 29
This week marks the completion of 75 years of the establishment of Nepal-US ties. On the occasion, the US Ambassador to Nepal Randy Berry has highlighted the need for stronger cooperation in the days to come.
“The foundation of this multi-generational US–Nepal relationship is people-to-people connections, sovereignty, and democratic values,” Berry said in a statement today, “Today, we need each other more than ever to tackle difficult issues like addressing the climate crisis and protecting democracy in the face of rising authoritarianism.”
“We look forward to doing this together, giving us the results that this friendship has given us for generations.”
The Nepal-US ties officially began on April 25, 1947. The US is the second country, only after the UK, with which Nepal established diplomatic relations, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
