NEW DELHI: The US Embassy today clarified that Ambassador Nancy Powell’s personal holiday plans in Nepal were cancelled due to pressing issues.
Acting spokesperson in the US Embassy Lee McManis was commenting on reports that Powell had cancelled the visit to Nepal after India downgraded privileges and benefits enjoyed by the US diplomats including the Ambassador here such as withdrawal of special pass to airports which gave them special access to various procedural checks.

“Ambassador Powell’s personal holiday plans in Nepal were cancelled to deal with pressing issues,” McManis said.–PTI
