NEPALS EXPLICIT RECOGNITION OF TIBETS SOVEREIGNTY
When Nepal applied to join the United Nations, it was required to submit proof that it was a sovereign state with the capacity to enter into relations with other states. Tibet Justice Center has made available a copy of Nepals application package of July 22, 1949.

application clearly shows that Nepal considered Tibet a sovereign state.
On page 9, the application describes Nepals Diplomatic Relations. It states:
The Diplomatic Relations of Nepal with the United Kingdom have already been described in paragraph 4(e) above. In addition, Nepal has established diplomatic relations with the following countries:
(a) Tibet. In 1856 Nepal established a Legation at Lhasa, maintained representatives at Gyangtse, Kuti and Kerung.
(c) United States of America
Nepal apparently considered its relations with the country of Tibet to be second in significance only to its relations with Britain, and even more significant than its relations with the USA or India.
Nepals UN application also included a copy of the text of the 1856 peace treaty between Nepal.
