Talking to the RSS today while returning Nepal after attending the global climate event in Dubai, Minister Mahato shared that Nepal’s issues were discussed with priority in the summit.

“This time, we presented ourselves from one-door system. As a result, our voices have become more vibrant,” he asserted.
