Mukherjee backs political process

New Delhi, May 27:

Indian External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee today said India would support the process of political accommodation among the major parties in Nepal.

After a 45-minute talk with the Indian minister today, Nepal’s ambassador to India Dr Durgesh Man Singh said Mukherjee expressed happiness at the “indigenous political process in Nepal, which is unique for the whole world.”

“I told him that a political understanding was in the making in Kathmandu,” he said.

On the formation of a future government, Mukherjee said it should be based on ‘give and take’ principle among the parties concerned.

“I believe that all sorts of political deadlocks will be resolved ultimately,” Dr Singh quoted Mukherjee as saying.

Stating that Nepal’s peace process was exemplary for the whole world, Mukherjee congratulated the Nepali people who were at the threshold of making a constitution on their own, according to a press release issued by the Nepal embassy in New Delhi.

Ambassador Dr Singh told The Himalayan Times that he got hints from the minister that India was willing to provide professional training, including training on construction of physical infrastructure, to the Maoist combatants.

According to the release, Mukherjee was looking forward to visiting Nepal soon.
