The Government and leading positions in civil society by first visiting them in detention between then and April 2006. And no one, I think, in May 2005 was prepared to predict that just one year later, in May 2006, a ceasefire would have come about, that it would lead on rapidly to intensive peace negotiations, to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in November 2006, and then to the promulgation of the Interim Constitution, the establishment of the Interim Legislature-Parliament bringing together those elected in 1999 and those who had fought in the insurgency, and then the establishment of Interim Government.
Of course, there have been very considerable difficulties in Nepal’s peace process, as in every peace process. I think we can say that many of the timelines set were unrealistic and therefore not achieved, but also commitments that were made and should have been fulfilled were not always observed, resulting in a return of mistrust between those who had brokered the peace agreement. Nepal’s peace process has been greatly complicated by being not only a process of building peace between the State and the ideological insurgency against it, but also by the claims of traditionally marginalized groups, who have not always been prepared to see their concerns represented through the political parties. So, of course, the process has had its very considerable ups and downs. But whenever I go to New York, as I did recently, to report to the Security Council and the Secretary-General, I am reminded how positively Nepal’s peace process is viewed internationally by those who look at conflict situations, and too often failed peace processes, around the world. And the reason why it is viewed positively is because it is not a process that was a result of international intervention or indeed a process that was brought about by third party mediation, by the United Nations, or anyone else. It was indeed a Nepali process, and the role of the United Nations has been only to support that process.
