Several prominent political figures from Nepal are currently on global tours, engaging in crucial discussions and representing their nation on the world stage.
Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ embarked on a visit to the United States last Saturday evening. His primary agenda is to participate in the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), where he is slated to address the assembly on September 21. The focus of his speech will be centered on the theme of “Rebuilding Trust and Reigniting Global Solidarity: Accelerating Action on the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals towards Peace, Prosperity, Progress, and Sustainability for All.” After his UNGA address, the Prime Minister is scheduled to travel directly to Hangzhou, China, on September 22.
Following the Prime Minister’s departure to America, Speaker Devraj Ghimire also left the country, heading a three-member delegation to Ireland on Sunday evening.
Meanwhile, former Prime Minister and Nepal Samajwadi Party (NSP) Chair Dr. Baburam Bhattarai is currently on a seven-day visit to India, accompanied by his daughter Manushi Yami Bhattarai. He departed for India on September 16 and is expected to return home on September 22.

Adding to the international presence of Nepali politicians, Janamat Party President CK Raut, Rashtriya Swatantra Party lawmaker Sobita Gautam, and Nepali Congress MP Rupa Bishwakarma are currently in the United States.
