NA gifts Khukuri to Prince Harry
22 March, Kathmandu:
Visiting UK Prince Henry Charles Albert David ‘Harry’ returned to the capital city Tuesday after completing his trip to Bardiya, Lamjung and Pokhara.
Chief of Army Staff, Rajendra Chhetri, received the UK Prince at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA). On the occasion, he gifted a ‘khukuri’ on behalf of the Nepal Army to Prince Harry who arrived here last Saturday on his five-day visit coinciding with the bicentenary of the establishment of Nepal-Britain diplomatic relations.
Khukuri is taken as a weapon symbolizing bravery of the Gorkhalis. On the occasion, Prince Harry admired the NA for its performance and thanked for its support and cooperation during his Nepal visit.
The NA has said the meeting between the Britain’s Prince and its chief would help further consolidate the bilateral ties.
