Kathmandu, Feb 10 : Nepali Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal this morning asked the Bhutanese Minister for Economic Affairs Wangchuk to take back the exiled Bhutanese.
“The third country resettlement alone would not solve the problem,” Nepal’s foreign advisor Rajan Bhattarai quoted Nepali PM as saying to Wangchuk. According to Bhattarai, Nepal also expressed his concern regarding the increasing suicidal trend among resettled Bhutanese in third countries.
In a response, Wangchuk committed that he would take the issue with the Bhutanese Prime Minister after his return.
Wangchuck, who reached Nepal yesterday as a special envoy, handed over invitation of Jigmi Y Thinley to Nepali PM in his official residence for the 16th Summit of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation to be held in Thimpu from April 28 – 29.
