KATHMANDU: The Parliament’s International Relations and Labour Committee has directed the Council of Ministers to completely ban sending Nepali workers to the Gulf countries until they formulate substantive laws relating to domestic help and make a bilateral labour agreement with Nepal.

A meeting of the Committee on Sunday instructed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Labour and Employment to immediately take an initiative at a higher level to rescue and repatriate the Nepali migrant workers who are facing difficulties in the Gulf countries.
