Remaining works of peace process to be completed on consensus: PM Dahal 

Kathmandu, Jan 21:

Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has expressed the belief that the remaining works of the peace process would be completed on the basis of consensus.

Addressing a special news conference organised at Tribhuvan International Airport upon returning home after attending the 19th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) today, he reiterated that the bill on Truth and Reconciliation Commission would be taken to its logical conclusion.

The PM stated that discussions are on with all sides and the remaining works of the peace process would be concluded through consensus immediately after the commencement of the upcoming session of the Federal Parliament.

“We have made preparations on the Truth and Reconciliation Bill after holding discussions with all. It has landed in the parliamentary committee after finalization from the sub-committee. It will be taken to the full house once the parliament session opens and concluded with priority,” he said. Prime Minister Dahal said he is effortful to have the bill decided through consensus.

The Prime Minister said the government’s works have been expedited and the ministers also have been directed to carry out works accordingly. “Ministers would be made to work providing them with target and we will take decisions accordingly if the responsibilities are not carried out in the right manner,” he added.

According to the PM, although Nepal’s bureaucracy is not weak in terms of efficiency and experience, there is some lacking when it comes to promptness, seriousness and courage to take initiation. He shared that he has been regularly holding discussions with the Chief Secretary, secretaries and the bureaucracy.

Govt serious on recruitment of Nepali youths in Russian military force
Asked about the woes Nepali youths facing after their recruitment in the Russian Army, the PM said he was serious and sensitive to that issue.

“The government is very much serious and sensitive towards the reports that Nepali youths are recruited in the Russian force and mobilised in the Russia-Ukraine conflict. We don’t have such policy on behalf of the government,” PM Dahal added.

The PM stated that the government has no policy to allow Nepalis for their recruitment in the military force in any other countries except the past agreements made for India and England.

He also shared that a diplomatic note has been sent to Russia on this issue and the Foreign Minister has repeatedly talked about this agenda.

The PM added that Nepal’s Foreign Minister held talks with Russian Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs at Kampala of Uganda during the 19th NAM Summit and was urged to send Nepali youths back home.
He said that talks were held regarding the youths killed in the war and the government has seriously taken the issue of compensation for them.

“Everyone should disseminate awareness among people. We should spread awareness stating that youth should not join the military service anywhere in name of seeking job against the State’s policy, the spirit of the Constitution and against the spirit of our democratic national independence. We should further aware people saying this is not the way to leave the country by avoiding formal way. The government is serious. All should work on it (to stop),” the PM argued.

Likewise, the PM said that Nepal has taken Taiwan as an integral part of China since the beginning. “We are not in favour of policy of separation of Taiwan after accepting One-China Principle,” PM Prachanda asserted.
Taiwan is China’s part and Nepal is stuck to this policy since the beginning, according to the PM.
