Dear Members of Forum Asia, Human Rights Defender colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to be here with you today. I would like to congratulate Forum-Asia for initiating this timely event. Ian Martin has asked me to convey his best wishes and solidarity to you; he cannot be here with you today as he has been called by the Secretary-General to assist in Timor-Leste.

Nepali human rights defenders have faced extraordinary challenges throughout the 10-year conflict, and have worked intensely and with great courage in the past 16 months. But now is not a time to rest on your laurels, and this period of political transition offers both opportunities and challenges for the protection and promotion of human rights.
