PDF File Size: 160 KB | Download   
The Government of Nepal for the cooperation it has extended to me during my visit. Over the past three days I held discussions with the Prime Minister, political leaders, the Minister of Peace and Reconstruction, members of the Constituent Assembly, the Attorney General, Army Chief, representatives of the National Human Rights Institutions and members of civil society.grateful for the warm welcome I received and for the very useful and important insights that I have been given regarding the human rights situation and evolving peace process in the country.the
peace process has progressed and that political consensus on important issues has been reached, despite ongoing challenges. There is still some way to go to accomplish all the tasks assigned through the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, including of course the promulgation of the new Constitution. But the commitment to a sustainable peace shown by all the major political parties is reassuring. I was impressed by the Prime Minister’s vision of strengthening national institutions and self reliance in the area of human rights.human rights concerns need to be addressed, for there to be sustainable peace in Nepal.
