President Ramchandra Paudel has decided to postpone his highly-anticipated visit to Europe. The decision to delay his overseas journey was announced by his Foreign Affairs Advisor, Suresh Chalise, earlier today.
President Paudel, who was scheduled to depart for France on November 8, followed by visits to Germany and Italy, has chosen to prioritize the ongoing rescue and relief operations for earthquake victims in the country. The recent devastating earthquake has left communities in distress, and the President has expressed his commitment to addressing the pressing needs of the affected areas.
Suresh Chalise stated that President Paudel is deeply concerned about the plight of those affected by the earthquake and believes that his presence and involvement in the relief efforts are crucial during this challenging time. While the President’s European visit is a significant diplomatic engagement, he believes that his foremost duty is to support his fellow citizens in their time of need.
The rescheduling of the President’s European visit will be announced in due course, once the situation in the earthquake-affected areas stabilizes and recovery efforts are well underway.
