Comment of Spokesperson on reported participation of some members of the diplomatic corps in an interaction organized by the Federal Alliance
When asked by a National New Agency reporter to comment on the reported participation of some members of the Kathmandu-based diplomatic corps in an interaction programme organized by the Federal Alliance in Kathmandu on 21 April 2016, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the Government of Nepal was not informed of the event.
He further stated that these kinds of incidents are not compatible with the letter and spirit of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, established diplomatic practices and code of conduct. Such engagements in essentially internal matters of Nepal without the knowledge of the Government are regrettable. He expressed hope that all diplomatic missions and their members carry out their functions in a manner that are consistent with their responsibilities.
