The attention of German Embassy is drawn towards recent news items which quoted German Ambassador to Nepal Frank Meyke as saying at a function in Tanahun district that people should not vote for a political party that enforces ban-das. This is not correct. Ambassador Meyke did not make such a statement.

According to a press release of Embassy of Federal Republic of German, the position of Germany and the whole European Union on bandas is expressed in the enclosed EU-statement of 12 September 2013, according to which “Bandhs also undermine our joint development efforts and Nepal’s investment perspectives”. This has been our consistent position.
