KATHMANDU: United States Ambassador to Nepal Randy Berry has started interacting with Nepali people on social media. The United States Embassy in Nepal started 'GuffGaff with the Ambassador', an interaction programme with the public, on Monday. The embassy, however, said the interaction would not touch 'political and other controversial issues, which may affect bilateral relations between the two countries'. The talk show, according to a US embassy source, would only discuss issues related to education and travel. Earlier, Berry had said that weekly video series called 'GuffGaff with the Ambassador' would answer the queries of around four million followers on the embassy's social media platforms.
At that time, Foreign Affairs Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali had said that there was no such practice in Nepal in which ambassadors interacted with Nepali people on social media.
I really enjoy interacting with you all on social media, but I realized that I will probably never meet all 4 million of our @USEmbassyNepal social media followers…so I am beginning "राजदूतसँग गफगाफ" to hear from & answer questions from you all. Stay tuned! pic.twitter.com/AGUaxki9eq— Ambassador Randy Berry (@USAmbNepal) May 20, 2019
