Nepalese Government recalls envoys from India, US

The government has recalled the ambassadors from India and the United States.

According to reports, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has sent a letter, Monday, recalling them.

Currently, Durgesh Man Singh is posted as the Nepalese ambassador to India while Suresh Chalise is posted as the Nepalese ambassador to the United States.

Both Singh and Chalise are said to be close to the Nepali Congress (NC) party, which is now in opposition. They had been appointed as ambassadors ten months ago after they cleared the parliamentary hearing process.

In the past also, governments use to recall envoys after change in central government as many of the ambassadors are political appointees.
