Arms Sales to Nepal (Taken Question)

Question:   Do we sell arms to Nepal? What level of military cooperation do we have with Nepal?

Answer:   In the past we have provided equipment and training to the Royal Nepalese Army. This fiscal year, $3 million was appropriated for military assistance to Nepal, including Foreign Military Financing and training. Our assistance to Nepal is overwhelmingly economic assistance, out of a total U.S. assistance level this fiscal year of roughly $42 million. Disbursement of our military assistance remains under review.
