Nepali New Year (Bikram Sambat) Message

On behalf of President Obama and the American people, I offer the people of Nepal best wishes for a prosperous and joyful New Year.

Nepal has achieved important milestones this past year, including the democratic election of a new Constituent Assembly.

I hope that the coming year will bring further progress towards enduring political stability and the full completion of a new constitution, keeping your country on the path of prosperity and peace.

Naya Barshako Shubha-Kamana!
