Period of recapitulation and correction in Nepals foreign policy

The king feared both China in the north and the British in the south; but was much more worried by the developments in the south (ruled by Firangies). He was, thus, the first king in Nepal to describe the non-aligned status of countrys foreign policy. The central focus of the policy, however, was the protection of economic interests and national identity.
