Parliamentary Committee endorses Pandey’s nomination as envoy to China

KATHMANDU, March 23: The Federal Parliament’s Parliamentary Committee has unanimously endorsed the name of Mahendra Bahadur Pandey as the resident ambassador to the People’s Republic of China and the non-resident ambassador to Democratic Republic of Korea and Magnolia.

A meeting of the committee held in Singha Durbar today accepted Pandey’s nomination unanimously, said committee president Laxman Lal Karna.

Earlier, the committee had issued a 10-day notice seeking complaint (s), if there is any, against him, but no complaint was filed.
