KATHMANDU, April 22: A US Congressional delegation led by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has arrived in Kathmandu as a part of a three-visit to the Himalayan nation.
US Ambassador to Nepal Randy Berry welcomed the delegation members in Kathmandu on Friday.
The delegation includes Senators Sheldon Whitehouse, Cory Booker, Mark Kelly, and Representative Mondaire Jones.
"Their visit is a testament that Nepal is an important partner to the United States due to our shared democratic values, people-to-people ties, and 75 years of diplomatic partnership," said the US Embassy in Kathmandu.
The visit is taking place on the eve of the 75th anniversary of the establishment of Nepal-US diplomatic ties. The visit will focus on the discussions about Russia's invasion on Ukraine and other issues of regional and global concerns.
It may be noted that Nepal has, in accordance with the UN Charter, stood against Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
