Rae arrived in Kathmandu on Monday, formally succeeding Jayant Prasad. Nepal is Rae’s third ambassadorial assignment after Vietnam and Hungary. However, he has been previously involved with Nepal as the Joint Secretary (North), overlooking India’s relation with Nepal and Bhutan. He held the position from 2002 to 2006, a crucial time in Nepali politics when the process to bring the Maoists into mainstream politics began.
At the ceremony, the President also accepted Letters of Credence from Dr. Urs Herren, Ms. Kirsten Rosenvold and Mr. Sami Mohammed Al-Sulaiman, ambassadors from the Swiss Confederation, Kingdom of Denmark and State of Kuwait respectively.
The Indian, Swiss and Danish ambassadors are residential while the Ambassador from Kuwait resides in New Delhi with concurrent accreditation to the Court of Nepal.
Minister for Foreign affairs and Home Affairs Madhav Prasad Ghimire , Army Chief Gaurav Shamsher Rana and other senior officials were present on the occasion. nepalnews.com
