US Ambassador to Nepal, Randy W Berry today suggested Nepal to be pro-Nepal, not pro-America or against any other country.
“We have never asked Nepal to be pro-America. We, of course, welcome the decades-long partnership between the two countries,” Ambassador Berry said at an interaction organized by the Institute of Strategic and Socio-Economic Research (ISSR) at the Pavilion Hall in Kathmandu on Friday.
In a loud and clear message to the Nepali people, Ambassador Berry said, “The US has never asked Nepal to be against any other country,” adding further, “We ask Nepal to guard its sovereignty fiercely including by strengthening the freedom, the openness, and the security, and allow this region to prosper.”
