While welcoming the inclusion of children's issues in the draft peace accord,
UNICEF urges all parties to the peace process in Nepal to abide by international instruments and to put the interest of children first during all stages of the peace accord. "Many issues regarding children's protection have been included in the draft peace agreement. This is a positive indication that children's concerns are being addressed," said Dr. Suomi Sakai, UNICEF Representative today. "However, there are still many issues regarding the protection and welfare of children involved in armed conflict that still need to be included in the final agreement." The armed conflict has taken a toll on children.They have been exposed to violence, whether directly or indirectly, and they have been deprived of their protective environment.They have been separated from their families, and their education has been disrupted. "We are extremely concerned that children below 18, who have been associated with armed forces and armed groups in Nepal, have not yet been returned or reintegrated with their families and communities," said Dr. Sakai. "The removal of children from armed forces and armed groups is imperative from a legal, human rights and
humanitarian perspective." The CPN-Maoists have agreed to disarm and be contained in cantonments, and the Nepali Army likewise have agreed to be confined in their barracks. At this stage, the peace agreement should specify special provisions for handing over children associated with armed forces and armed groups to child protection agencies. This should be initiated from the very early stages, when the children are brought into the cantonments and camps. UNICEF urges all parties to focus on the return and reintegration of all children associated with armed forces and armed groups. "All children should be reached, whether they are boys or girls, irrespective of whether they were combatants or non-combatants and whether they were conscripted or had joined voluntarily," said Dr. Sakai. "Girls, unaccompanied and disabled children associated with armed forces and groups need special attention."
