PM admits Copenhagen flop

KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal said that he would take the initiative to resolve the ongoing political deadlock. Nepal was speaking with reporters at the Tribhuvan International Airport on his arrival from the Copenhagen summit on Sunday. He said that he sees no alternative to the politics of consensus and cooperation.

"I'll hold talks with Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal very soon," Nepal said. He pleaded with the Maoists to call off the general strike for the sake of the new constitution and peace process as it would trigger further conflicts in the country.

Speaking about the Copenhagen summit, the PM said it was not successful in striking any relevant deal for developing countries like Nepal.

PM Nepal claimed that he was able to draw the attention of the international community to the impact of climate change on the glaciers of Nepal.
