The government of Nepal for the cooperation it has extended during my visit, and particularly for its willingness to discuss human rights issues frankly. I would also like to thank the people of Nepal for their warm welcome. during my visit, I held discussions with the government, including the President, prime minister, speaker and ministers of foreign affairs and Peace and reconstruction. I also met commissioners of the other national human rights institutions, members of civil society, victims of human rights violations and families of victims, leaders of political parties, diplomatic representatives and my UN colleagues. Yesterday, I travel led outside of kathmandu, to Janakpur in the central terai. Nepal for the achievements of their historic struggle for democracy and the progress their country has made since the conflict ended. When i met the prime minister, I welcomed his stated commitment trend impunity and discrimination, and ensure respect for the human rights of all nepalis. The confidence bestowed on the Prime minister by the people of nepal through an historic election places upon him a special responsibility. I told him that the Human Rights Council is also following closely the progress his Government is making to fulfil that commitment and to uphold the trust of the people of Nepal. My report to the Council, which will be discussed in Geneva next week,“Nepal has the real possibility to grasp the historic opportunity to prove itself as a leader in implementing its human rights commitments. Above all, the nepalese people, who have suffered long years of deprivation and denial as a result of the conflict, are entitled to have their human rights respected and fulfilled.
