Nepal seeks extension of UN missionJuly 10th, 2008 - 9:23 pm ICT by IANS
Kathmandu, July 10 (Xinhua) The Nepali government has formally requested the UN for extension of the term of the world forum’s mission in the Himalayan country by another six months, nepalnews.com website reported Thursday. Deputy chief of Nepal’s permanent mission at the UN headquarters in New York, Madhuban Poudel, handed over a letter to the UN chief Ban Ki-moon, requesting extension of the term of UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN).
The extension of the term of the UN mission in the country would help the peace process, mainly in checking illegal arms, Poudel said.
Poudel said the secretary general would table the letter at the UN Security Council meeting later this month for approval.
The UNMIN’s current term expires July 23.
