Nepal to give Japan a pair of rhinos

Nepal plans to give Japan a pair of one-horned rhinoceros as present of the Nepalese government and people on the occasion of Nepalese Crown Prince Dipendra's official visit to Japan, the Ministry of Forest and Soil Conservation said Friday.

Prince Dipendra is currently on an eight-day visit to Japan.

The forestry ministry said it hopes that the symbol of friendship would help consolidate the cordial and friendly relations between the two countries.

Nepal has about a third of the world's total population of 2,000 one-horned rhinos, which is classified as an endangered species.
