Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani has decided to postpone his eagerly awaited two-day visit to Nepal, originally scheduled for November 6 and 7. The postponement was officially confirmed by sources within the Qatari Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who cited the escalating tensions in Israel as the reason for the decision.
The news of the Emir’s visit delay was relayed by the Qatari Embassy in Kathmandu to the Nepalese Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This development has created a significant setback for the Ministry, as they had meticulously arranged and prepared for the Emir’s visit, with high hopes of strengthening diplomatic ties and exploring opportunities for cooperation between the two nations.
An official from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed disappointment but also optimism, indicating that the rescheduled date for the Emir’s visit will be determined through bilateral discussions between Qatar and Nepal. This postponement underscores the impact of global events on diplomatic schedules and the importance of addressing critical international matters. As the situation in Israel continues to evolve, it remains to be seen when the Emir’s visit to Nepal will take place. The delay serves as a testament to the ever-changing dynamics of international relations.
