At a courtesy meeting held at the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoCTCA) on Tuesday, Minister Ale requested Paola Pampaloni, Deputy Managing Director of the European Union’s External Affairs for Asia and the Pacific, to consider releasing the band on Nepal Airlines Corporation’s aircraft from flying over the sky of the European Union member nations.

Pampaloni, who arrived in Nepal last Saturday leading a three-member delegation to participate in the meeting of the Nepal-EU Joint Commission, responded to Minister Ale that the EU was positive about removing Nepal from its blacklist. “A positive talk has begun to remove Nepal from EU’s blacklist. Nepal will certainly be removed from it,” she said.
