    Nepal's government has recalled its Ambassador to India Deep Kumar Upadhyay over "political differences" related to the visit of Nepal's head to India, the ambassador told Sputnik.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to media reports, Nepalese President Bidhya Devi Bhandari has canceled her visit to India scheduled to start on May 9 due to political instability in Nepal.

    "I have been recalled by my government. There are some political differences. I have advised my government that Nepalese President's visit should not be canceled at the last stage as it will have a bad impact on the India — Nepal relations. But my government didn't heed to my advice. They are thinking that I am dictating them. But I have been working to improve the relations between the two countries," the ambassador said.

    According to the ambassador, he will leave India within four to five days.

    Upadhyay was appointed as Nepal's Ambassador to India in April 2015.
