KATHMANDU: Prof. Surya Subedi has urged the Government of Nepal to withhold the motion of selling up building and premises of Embassy of Nepal in London, United Kingdom.
The international law professor of the Leeds University in England also requested the government to acknowledge the voice and sentiment of the Nepali community in UK before taking any decision regarding maintaining or selling the mission building and premises.
“I would like to urge Nepal’s Interim Election Council to withhold all procedure relating to selling up the embassy building in London,” Prof. Subedi, also the Patron of Non-Resident Nepalese Association, UK, said in a statement issued on Friday.
A high-level 9 member-government team is currently in London so as to take stock of the condition of the mission building and its valuation if sold. In a discussion with the delegates, Nepali diaspora in UK had urged not to sell the mission.
The embassy is located at Kensington Palace of London, which is prime property and highly valued in England. “Nepalis have taken the building having historic importance as a matter of glory,” Subedi said.
