Kathmandu, January 22
The United States Ambassador to Nepal, Randy Berry, has informed Nepal of priorities of the new US President Joe Biden.
Berry met Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Friday and informed him of the priorities, according to the US Embassy in Kathmandu.
“Ambassador Berry noted that the Biden administration wants to partner with Nepal and other countries to meet the common challenges that no single nation can face on its own – from climate change to nuclear proliferation, and from cyberwarfare to global health challenges like Covid-19,” the embassy statement reads.
Ambassador Berry told Prime Minister Oli the new administration would use diplomacy as the premier tool for global engagement as “President Biden believes in international cooperation to solve common challenges like Covid-19.” He also informed that President Biden would resume the US membership in the World Health Organization and restore the US relationship with other international organisations and reinvigorate partnerships with democracies around the world, including Nepal.
The embassy says Berry will soon meet other key politicians of the country to inform them of the new administration’s priorities.
