Nepal peace process 'exemplary', praises Dahal

KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said that Nepal's peace process has been a great example for the world community.

The establishment of the federal democratic republic by abolishing monarchy and management of guerillas were notable achievements of the country's peace process, according to Dahal who led the 10-year-old armed struggle against the monarchy.

While addressing a function organised by a delegation from Myanmar and the Institute of Management Studies of Nepal on Thursday, PM Dahal said promulgation of the Nepal's Constitution from the Constituent Assembly and institutionalisation of the political achievements were significant.

However, some of the tasks for concluding the country's peace process were not carried out yet, he maintained.

Saying that every country's peace process had own distinctive features, Dahal believed that Myanmar's peace talks preceded by the war would be concluded successfully.

Dahal also said that movements having political goals would always end through talks, but conflicts without political goals were mere criminal activities.
