Kathmandu, Sept 1: The government has recommended Deep Kumar Upadhyay and Leela Mani Poudyal as the ambassadors to India and China respectively.
The meeting of the Council of Ministers took this decision on Thursday, said government spokesperson Surendra Kumar Karki. Upadhyay serving as Ambassador to India was recalled by the Oli government four months back.
Poudyal is the former chief secretary of the government, and has served as Consulate General in Lhasha.
