Maoist chairman Prachanda, along with senior leader Dr. Baburam Bhattarai, held an interaction with donors, ambassadors and diplomats at the UN House, Thursday.
Emerging from the interaction, Prachanda told reporters that he had very fruitful discussions. "There are many questions in the western countries regarding our party's position about multiparty politics, peace, economic development and so on. We tried to convince them that we are aware of the (realities) of the 21st century," Prachanda said.
In the joint meeting, which was also participated by US ambassador to Nepal, Prachanda said he answered to queries from them. "I believe we tried to put forth our views regarding durable peace and economic development."
Responding to queries from media, Prachanda said that the decision on whether or not to extend the UNMIN will be taken before the first meeting of Constituent Assembly after holding talks among political parties.
Regarding the army integration issue, he said the process will proceed along with constitution-making exercise through a special committee.
