Change Of US President Will Not Affect MCC Project In Nepal: Ambassador Berry

“Our political transition is not going to affect the MCC in Nepal. For us, MCC is not a political unit. It is a unit for economic development and assistance,” US Ambassador to Nepal Randy Berry said.

By N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- The United States Ambassador to Nepal Randy Berry has said that the democratic transition in the US, in which newly elected President Joe Biden was sworn in on January 20, 2021, will not affect the US’s Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) policy and project in Nepal.

“Our political transition is not going to affect the MCC in Nepal. For us, MCC is not a political unit. It is a unit for economic development and assistance,” Ambassador Berry said, as he was talking with journalists on Monday, February 1, 2021.

On the question of Nepal Communist Party (NCP)’s ongoing dispute, Ambassador Berry said it was not his business to talk about this.

“This is not my business to talk about this and take a position. We will not take any position, as this is not our business,” Ambassador Berry said.

On the question of dissolution of the House of Representatives, Ambassador Berry said this issue has to be resolved by a constitutional and democratic process and by the Supreme Court after discussions.

On Biden administration’s priorities in Nepal, Ambassador Berry said the US’s major concern is about Nepal’s democratic system.

“Nepal is a sovereign country. Sovereign institutions are here. In Nepal and worldwide, the major US concern is that a democratic system has to be functional and working,” Ambassador Berry said, adding that the US has been mainly assisting Nepal for democracy, democratic institutions and the democratic processes.
