Address by Representative of the Secretary-General in Nepal Karin Landgren to the 100 th meeting of Joint Monitoring Coordination Committee
Abstract:
This week marks three years since the ceasefire agreement: Nepal has been at peace for three years. In these years, the country has seen remarkable changes. The Jana Andolan in April 2006 and the Constituent Assembly election in April 2008 demonstrated the people’s desire for change and for participation. They have further expectations of their political leaders, and of their institutions, for the protection of their security, their rights, and their livelihoods. All of us have seen from close quarters the consequences of war. I have seen it in decades of working with refugees and in countries affected by conflict. At a practical level, you have already eliminated nearly 8000 kgs of explosive remnants of war, and cleared some of the minefields that were laid. This year, nine more NA minefields will be cleared, and the remaining explosive materials stored in the Maoist cantonments will be destroyed. It is time for rapid reflection on how best to protect Nepal’s achievements and ensure a successful conclusion to the peace process. This is Nepal’s process and you are major actors in it. In my recent briefing to the Security Council, I emphasized the importance of the JMCC, the only forum that brings together Nepal Army and Maoist army representatives to discuss compliance with the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and the Agreement on the Monitoring of the Management of Arms and Armies (AMMAA). When the history of Nepal’s peace process is written, the record will show that through some very difficult moments, the NA and the Maoist army continued to comply with the AMMAA, and continued to take part in this forum. The JMCC is a shining example of the peace process at work.
