KATHMANDU — The government has objected a reported meeting of foreign diplomats in Kathmandu with the leaders of the agitating Federal Alliance.
Issuing a statement on Friday, Ministry of Foreign Affairs objected a meeting of the diplomats with the Madhesi leaders. “Such engagements in essentially internal matters of Nepal without the knowledge of the Government are regrettable,” said Spokesperson at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The MoFA spokesperson commented that “the Government of Nepal was not informed of the event”.
“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,” the MoFA statement read.
The agitating Alliance on Thursday had held a meeting with representatives of diplomatic missions based in the Capital to clarify that their new programs of protest would be peaceful, non-violent and democratic.
