Kathmandu, Sept 11

Vice-president Nanda Bahadur Pun has said Nepal’s peace process is exemplary in the world.

During a meeting with a delegation led by Deputy Chair of Afghanistan High Peace Council Habiba Sarabi, the vice-president said, “The countries in conflict can learn a lot from Nepal’s peace process. I am very pleased to learn about the beginning of peace process in Afghanistan. A lot of things can be learnt from Nepal,” Vice-president Pun’s press coordinator Manoj Ghartimagar quoted him as saying.

During the meeting, the vice-president said both conflicting parties should be equally serious and responsible for lasting peace. “Both sides should seek a meeting point. Peace process can advance only when the conflicting parties ascertain a meeting point. There can be no meeting point if conflicting parties stick to their stances,” he said.

The vice-president also suggested to the Afghan team to take ahead the peace process considering the uniqueness of their situation.

“You can learn something from Nepal, we are ready to extend our support, if needed,” Pun told the Afghan delegation wishing for the success of the peace process in Afghanistan.

During the meeting, Habiba Sarabi said her country was moving ahead on the path to peace.

“We are pleased to learn many things from Nepal’s peace process,” she added.
