     -  The Himalayan Times

    The government may, anytime soon, send an agremo of ambassadors to be accepted by the 21 world capitals as the Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee (PHSC) on Friday approved the names of ambassadorial nominees.

    Those approved are Pampha Bhusal, Bijaya Kanta Lal Karna, Yogendra Dhakal, and Dr Rishi Adhikary for France, Denmark, Australia and Malaysia, respectively. All four were nominated by the Maoists.

    Others who have been approved by PHSC are Arjun Bahadur Thapa, Baija Nath Thapaliya and Kamal Koirala for United Arab Emirates, Israel and South Korea, respectively.

    PHSC also approved the nomination of Dr Suresh Chalise for the United States of America), Surya Nath Mishra for Qatar, Surya Kiran Gurung for Russia, Navin Prakash Jung Shah for Thailand, Murari Raj Sharma for United Kingdom, Ganesh Yonjan for Japan, Pramesh Hamal for Belgium, Tanka Karki for China, Hamid Ansari for Saudi Arabia, Guna Laxmi Sharma BK for Myanmar, Bal Bahadur Kunwar for Pakistan, Dinesh Bhattarai for Geneva, and Pradeep Khatiwada for Bangladesh.

    Meanwhile, the Committee also approved Shailaja Acharya's appointment as ambassador to India, even though some Left parties opposed to the decision.

    Though the Rastriya Janamorcha Neapal and the CPN-Maoist opposed Acharya's appointment, the PHSC members approved her appointment.

    Friday was the last day for the PHSC to conduct a hearing on the ambassador nominees so that it can forward its decision unanimously approving the names of the 21 ambassadors.
    Due to strong opposition by Rastriya Janamorcha Nepal MP Dilaram Acharya, the PHSC failed to approve Shailaja's name on Wednesday.

    Acharya had said that Shailaja cannot be appointed an envoy as she had supported the royal regime.
