Nepal at Crossroads: Ban Ki-moon

UN news center,
The peace process in Nepal is facing unprecedented challenges, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says in a new report, urging the parties there to reach agreement on future steps, including a realistic timetable for elections that were to have been held next month but have been postponed to an as yet undetermined date.
Report of the Secretary-General on the request of Nepal for United Nations assistance in support of its peace process:
1. The present report is submitted pursuant to Security Council resolution 1740(2007), in which the Council established the United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) in response to the request of the Government of Nepal and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), or CPN(M), for United Nations support for the peace process. UNMIN was established as a special political mission with a mandate to monitor the management of arms and armed personnel of CPN(M) and the Nepal Army, assist in monitoring ceasefire arrangements, provide technical support for the conduct of the election of a Constituent Assembly in a free and fair atmosphere and provide a small team of electoral monitors.2. The report reviews the progress of the peace process and the implementation of the mandate of UNMIN since my previous report to the Council of 18 July 2007 (S/2007/442). It further takes stock of the challenges facing Nepal in its efforts toconsolidate peace and embark on its historic transition. furthermore, please click here
