According to the press statement released by Kanjirowa, students from Grade VIII to X performed their roles as the delegates of UN member states and discussed on various current international affairs relevant to the world during the academic simulation of the United Nations.
The program was attended by Public Affairs Officer of US Embassy in Nepal, Tristram Perry, as the chief guest and National Information Officer of UN office in Nepal, Ram Babu Shah, as special guest.
