KATHMANDU: Nepal has voted in favour of a United Nation (UN) resolution to deplore Russia over the Ukraine invasion on Wednesday.
Nepal was among the 141 countries that voted against Russian invasion of Ukraine. Five countries voted against the resolution.
Thirty five countries including China and India, however, remained abstained. Of the 193 member states, 141 countries voted for the resolution.
