SUBJECT: NEPAL STILL UNDECIDED ABOUT KOSOVO'S STATUS 
 
REF: A. KATHMANDU 0070 
 
     ¶B. STATE 1087 
 
Classified By: Ambassador Nancy J. Powell.  Reasons 1.4 (b/d). 
 
(C) On February 1, Rudra Nepal, Under Secretary for UN and 
International Organizations at the Ministry of Foreign 
Affairs (MFA), told Emboffs that the Government of Nepal 
(GON) was still undecided about whether it would recognize 
Kosovo as an independent nation.  The GON has been silent 
about Kosovo since Ambassador first raised the issue with the 
Foreign Secretary on January 9 (Ref A).  The Under Secretary 
said that the MFA would consult legal experts before making a 
recommendation to the cabinet.  Rudra Nepal said that, to his 
knowledge, the Russian embassy has not approached the GON on 
the issue.
