British Ambassador Andrew James Sparkes CMG called today on Foreign Minister Mahendra Bahadur Pandey and Foreign Secretary Shanker Das Bairagi in order to tell them that he will complete his assignment in Nepal next month. Sparkes has taken a personal decision to leave the British Foreign Service after thirty years service and three Ambassadorial posts. He wishes to have time to pursue other opportunities outside government.

“Sparkes hopes to maintain his links to Nepal, for which he has a great affection, and to continue his engagement with the development of the country particularly in the education and health sectors,” said a press release issued by British Embassy.

“I may be leaving as Ambassador but I am sure I am not saying goodbye to Nepal. I wish success and prosperity to its great people, and hope to continue to play my part as an individual in the upcoming celebration of 200 years of special relationship between Nepal and the UK,” said Sparkes.
