People's Review - - NEWS -

Kath­mandu, 14 Septem­ber: In­dian am­bas­sador Man­jib­s­ingh Puri called on newly ap­pointed Chief of Army Staff Gen Pur­nachan­dra Thapa on Mon­day, the next day he as­sumed of­fice. The meet­ing was re­lated to Nepal's non-par­tic­i­pa­tion on BIMSTEC mil­i­tary ex­er­cise, how­ever, Nepal's For­eign Min­istry is un­aware about the in­ci­dent, re­ports Kan­tipur daily. When­ever, for­eign am­bas­sadors or au­thor­i­ties will meet with any of the gov­ern­ment of­fi­cers, there is the pro­to­col of in­form­ing the For­eign Min­istry. Ac­cord­ing to an of­fi­cer in the For­eign Min­istry, the min­istry was un­aware about the meet­ing be­tween CoAS and the am­bas­sador. Ex­perts say that such a prac­tice is a diplo­matic in­sult. They have re­marked that the gov­ern­ment has failed to stop such a prac­tice.
