French MOFA declarion about Nepal

Press briefing by the Foreign and European Affairs Ministry presse Spokesman concerning Nepal (24th April 2012)

"France welcomes the progress achieved in recent months on the peace process in Nepal, particularly on the issue of the integration of former Maoist guerrilla fighters. This progress is an extremely positive step for the future of the country.

The completion of all elements of the process (reintegration, the constitution and also the fight against impunity) is essential in order to consolidate the rule of law and democracy, which will contribute to national reconciliation and the country’s sustainable development.

France encourages the Republic of Nepal to continue its efforts to this end, while respecting its international commitments. She will continue to support these efforts, through her action within the United Nations and the European Union, which will contribute to national reconciliation and the country’s development.

With our European partners, we encourage whoever contributes to that country’s reconciliation and development."
