UNMIN presence not needed anymore says Peace Minister

Minister for Peace and Reconstruction, Rakam Chemjong, on Wednesday said Nepal doesn't need the UN mission anymore for concluding the peace process.

Minister Chemjong said the government does not feel it necessary to extend the tenure of the United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN).

Speaking at an interaction programme in Dhankuta, minister Chemjong accused UNMIN of failing on several counts while monitoring the peace process.

According to him, the mission has been biased and that it is more loyal to the Unified CPN (Maoist).

Minister Chemjong mentioned that the Special Committee for supervison, integration and rehabilitation of the Maoist army combatants would be able to handle the remaining works of peace process after the UNMIN departs from Nepal.
