Chairman of National Assembly Ganesh Prasad Timilsina gave away Ambassador of Pakistan Scholarship to 500 Nepali students today.

The scholarship amounting to NRs 10,000 each was awarded by the Embassy of Pakistan at the 8th Annual Ambassador of Pakistan Scholarship distribution ceremony.

The ceremony was organised at Hyatt Regency, Kathmandu.

Speaking on the occasion, Chairman Timilsina appreciated the efforts by Pakistan Embassy to create people-to-people connection between the two countries, especially in the field of education.

This, he said, was a reflection of the friendly ties between Pakistan and Nepal. Ambassador of Pakistan to Nepal Mazhar Javed expressed his commitment to further expanding the scholarship programme.

President of Nepal-Pakistan Friendship and Cultural Association Himalaya Shamsher Rana appreciated the embassy’s efforts and said the scholarship programme brought the youths of both the countries closer.
