KATHMANDU: Dean Thompson, the newly appointed US Ambassador to Nepal, has arrived in Nepal.

He arrived in Nepal soon after Ambassador Randy Berry returned home after completing his four-year tenure.

According to the American Embassy in Kathmandu, Thompson will submit his credentials to President Bidya Devi Bhandari after a few days of rest.

Ambassador Berry returned home last Sunday after completing his four-year term as US Ambassador to Namibia.

Just two days before his return, Thompson was sworn in as the newly-appointed US Ambassador to Nepal on Friday.

Thompson served as the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs, overseeing U.S. policy and relations with the countries in the region.

He is a member of the Senior Foreign Service and has more than 25 years of experience in U.S. diplomacy.

Most recently, Thompson also served as the Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

He has also served as Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest, Romania, U.S. Consul General in Kolkata, India, and the Chief of the Economic and Commercial Affairs section of the U.S. Embassy in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Thompson’s other overseas service includes tours at the U.S. Embassies in Paraguay and Bangladesh.

Prior to joining the Foreign Service, he worked in the Office of the Secretary of Defense on counterproliferation issues and U.S. security assistance to the Republic of Korea.

Thompson has a Masters of Public Management from the University of Maryland, School of Public Affairs and a Masters of National Security Studies from the U.S. National War College.
