As the first Nepali politician to meet King Charles III and British Prime Minister Sunak in London, Foreign Minister NP Saud, a young NC leader from Sudurpaschim, has reason to celebrate his political career.

Even though their encounter at the reception was brief, King Charles III may have thought back to his trip to Nepal when speaking with Foreign Minister Saud.

This encounter is significant because it serves as a reminder of the two nations' long-standing ties as Nepal and England commemorate the 100th anniversary of their 1924 treaty. At the King's reception held for the foreign delegates at Buckingham Palace last evening, the Minister for Foreign Affairs N.P. Saud had the opportunity to meet King Charles III and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Rishi Sunak.

Narayan Prakash Saud, the minister of foreign affairs, was present at Westminster Abbey for the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III and Her Majesty Queen Camilla.

Meanwhile, words of congratulations were extended to His Majesty King Charles III on His Majesty's Coronation as the King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland by President Ramchandra Paudel and Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' today.
