Nepal: Secretariat of His Majesty the King

Notice of the Press Secretariat of His Majesty the King

The attention of this Secretariat has been drawn to various reports in sections of the media that arms were purchased during the official visit of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Paras Bir Bikram Shah Dev to the Republic of Austria last March

While recalling that the objective of the visit, which took place at the invitation of H.E. Dr. Wolfgang Schuessel, Federal Chancellor of the Republic of Austria, was to hand over a pair of rhinoceros gifted by the people of Nepal to the people of Austria, this Secretariat condemns the media reports on the arms purchase as totally baseless, fabricated and motivated by malicious intent.
