In response, the guest also expressed gratitude for the government for its excellent cooperation. Stating that the LWF is committed towards migrant and refugees, he said, “We began supporting the Bhutanese refugees in Nepal from the beginning and we will continue the support till the end.”

The Prime Minister was accompanied by Finance Minister Yubaraj Khatiwada during the meeting.
