Kathmandu, April 24:
Danish ambassador to Nepal Finn Thilsted, issuing a press statement today, said his country congratulated Nepali people on the anniversary of the peopleâ€™s movement, that one year ago gave new hope for a peaceful and democratic Nepal.
â€œThis is a day of celebration as the peace process in Nepal has seen great achievements. The Comprehensive Peace Agreement, the interim constitution, the interim parliament and the formation of the eight-party interim government are crucial steps towards lasting peace and inclusive democracy â€” even though the process has been slower than expected,â€ said the Danish ambassador.
â€œElections to the Constituent Assembly must be free and fair and inclusive â€” and all sectors of the Nepali society must work together to secure that such elections can take place as soon as possible,â€ the statement added.
