A member of the Nepal-India Eminent Persons Group has urged the prime ministers of Nepal and India to accept the report prepared by the group as soon as possible.

The group's Nepal coordinator Dr Bhekh Bahadur Thapa said in a statement today that an informal meeting between the members of the group concluded that the report would be handed over to the prime ministers of the two countries as soon as possible, and if that was not possible it would be brought to the public.

The group was formed by the governments of the two countries to review past agreements signed between the two countries.

The group worked for about three-and-a-half years to come up with a report in detail and it would not be appropriate to leave it under the responsibility of the coordinators, without handing it over to the two governments, Thapa said in the statement.
