Vietnam welcomes recent political developments in Nepal
VietNamNet Bridge – A Vietnamese representative to the United Nations Security Council has welcomed the recent positive political developments in Nepal, especially the election of its new government in last August.
Addressing the UN Security Council’s debate of the UN Secretary General’s report on the situation in Nepal in New York on Nov. 7, Ambassador Bui The Giang called on concerned parties to continue speeding up peace process on the basis of dialogues and compromises.
The diplomat also called for massive participation of Nepalese people in the peace process, early drafting of a new constitution and settlement of outstanding problems.
He welcomed the Nepalese government for making a host of priority commitments for the country’s future development, including its law-making, anti-corruption, economic recovery and infrastructure development programmes, as well as assistance for poor families and sufferers of conflicts in the country.
In his speech, the Vietnamese diplomat said he supported the international community to develop an effective partnership with the Nepalese Government in the latter’s national reconstruction.
He highly valued the United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN)’s recent activities, encouraging the mission to continue coordinating with the UN agencies in Nepal to soon accomplish the peace process and transfer of remaining work.
The Ambassador suggested that the UNMIN increase cooperation and exchange of views with the Nepalese Government to ensure the effectiveness of its operation in Nepal.
