Thank you WikiLeaks for leaking things, It is unbelievable to hear about the case of fake visa scandal at US Embassy in Nepal. And also surprising to be revealed the fact about two Tibetan refugees carrying fake Nepali passport but securing a valid visa from US Embassy. More shocking the Tibetans carrying a letter from US Embassy approving the letter bearers are Tibetans, which is to be delivered upon arrival in immigration desk in USA Airport.

Thank for leaking information about Nepal and US. I believe every country should stay in their own limit. They should cross their boundaries. Furthermore, I believe each country will attempt to maintain their cordinal relationship with other. Neem G. Lama, Kathmandu

From the Wiki Leak, it is confirmed that the US is the most powerful country of all, and every other nation are vying to receive assistance from the powerful nation. It's a great blow for them as well. I hope everything will be under control and lets hope for the peaceful world. Tashi Gurung, Kathmandu
