Nepal's foreign relations expanded after the Anglo-Nepal Treaty of 1923, which was recognised by the League
of Nations. After a Soviet veto in 1949, Nepal was admitted to the United Nations in 1955. Friendship treaties
were signed with the Dominion of India in 1950 and the People's Republic of China in 1960. Nepal hosts the
permanent secretariat of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), of which it is a founding
member. Nepal is also a member of the Non Aligned Movement and the Bay of Bengal Initiative. The military of
Nepal is the fifth largest in South Asia and is notable for its Gurkha history, particularly during the world wars,
and has been a significant contributor to United Nations peacekeeping operations

Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic
Republic of Nepal is a landlocked central
Himalayan country in South Asia. Nepal is
divided into 7 provinces and 75 districts
and 744 local units including 4 metropolises,
13 sub-metropolises, 246 municipal councils a
nd 481 villages. It has a population of
26.4 million and is the 93rd largest country
by area. Bordering China in the north and
India in the south, east, and west, it is the
largest sovereign Himalayan state. Nepal does not border Bangladesh,
which is located within only 27 km (17 mi) of its southeastern tip. Neither
does it border Bhutan due to the Indian state of Sikkim being located in
between. Nepal has a diverse geography, including fertile plains,
subalpine forested hills, and eight of the world's ten tallest mountains,
including Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. Kathmandu is the
nation's capital and largest city. It is a multiethnic nation with Nepali as
the official language.
