UK to assist Nepal in climate actions

21 May, KATHMANDU: British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has said that his government would assist Nepal in its efforts to cope with climate crises.

The British PM said it while addressing a special function organised by the Nepali Embassy in UK on the occasion of the centenary of Nepal-UK Friendship Treaty on Monday.

The event was held at PM Sunak’s office. In the days to come, the UK will boost its cooperation with Nepal on economic issues like trade, investment, and climate change as well.

He lauded the contribution made by the ‘British Gorkha’ to elevate bilateral relations.

PM Sunak also recalled the visit of King Charles in Nepal. He also appreciated the works and achievements of Nepali diaspora in the UK.

On the occasion, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Anne-Marie Trevelyan, shined light on UK-Nepal ties. Britain has been continuing assistance to Nepal in its development initiatives, which continues in the days ahead as well, she assured.

Nepal could be assisted in making it capable of graduating to a middle-income country with the expansion of economic relations, according to her.

Nepali Ambassador to Britain, Gyan Chandra Acharya, expressed best wishes on behalf of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ to the UK Prime Minister Sunak. He spoke on different dimensions of the 1923 Treaty between Nepal and Britain.

The Treaty opened up an avenue for Nepal to the international world for expanding relations, he viewed.

The event was also attended by British lawmakers, high level officials, Nepali diaspora and well-wishers of Nepal in the UK.
