Foreign Minister Dr Narayan Khadka has said the country's foreign policy depends on the domestic state of affairs.

"Domestic politics with unity can create a solid base for effective foreign policy," says Minister Khadka.

"The foreign policy is in fact a mirror of domestic affairs. Some of our relations are not clear. It is when emotions override diplomacy," he adds.

The Minister explained while addressing a greetings exchange program organized by the International Relations Committee of the House of Representatives on Wednesday.

Moreover, he said diplomacy overridden by emotion does not give positive results. 

The Minister pointed out the need to prioritize national interest, independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity, world peace while guiding diplomacy. 

"National interest is not specific to any party but a common agenda," he argued, adding that the issues as MCC need to be sorted out soon by forging national consensus among the political parties.

He also asserted that the discussion, consultation, and the address he had at UNGA recently made a good impact.
