KATHMANDU – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has urged Nepali citizens not to go for security-related work in war-torn countries.
Issuing a statement on Tuesday, the ministry said that its attention had been drawn to news reports in some social networks and media stating that Nepali citizens have been recruited into foreign armies in war-torn countries.
The ministry also informed the government does not have a policy to allow Nepali citizens to join foreign armies except for some friendly countries that have been recruiting Nepali citizens into their national armies under the traditional agreement regarding the recruitment of Nepali citizens in foreign armies.
“Therefore, everyone is requested not to go for security-related work in war-torn countries on the basis of false information,” reads the statement.
The ministry also urged everyone to be aware of the risks involved in such activities and the difficulties in conducting rescue.
