Nepal and Liechtenstein have set up diplomatic relations. The number of countries Nepal has diplomatic ties with has now reached 155 which comprises over 80 per cent of the United Nations member states including all original signatories of the UN Charter. Durga Prasad Bhattarai, Permanent Representative of Nepal to the UN, and Ambassador Christian Wenaweser, Permanent Representative of the Principality of Liechtenstein to the UN, signed a joint paper to this effect amid a function organised today in New York. UN Secretary-General António Guterres was informed about the matter later. During the meeting held at the Permanent Mission of Nepal, the two diplomats shared their confidence that the diplomatic ties would help develop and further strengthen friendly relations and cooperation between the two countries in the UN framework and beyond.
