EU envoys meet Maoist leadersNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:04 am ICT by admin
Prachanda and Bhattarai assured that the Maoist would not disrupt the ongoing peace process and that the entire struggle programme would be peaceful.
They also said that if there is any kind of effort to suppress their struggle, then they would be compelled to ‘take retaliatory action’.
Saying that an enabling atmosphere to hold the Constituent Assembly election won’t be formed until the country is not declared a republic and a fully proportional representation voting system is adopted, the Maoist leaders said all problems facing the country would be solved once these two things were done. They also urged the EU envoys to help create an environment conducive for fulfilment of these two demands.
EU envoys led by British Ambassador Dr Andrew Hall, representing the EU local presidency, had called on Prime Minister Koirala and UML General Secretary MK Nepal on Wednesday, and urged them to work towards creating conditions for holding credible elections to Constituent Assembly. (ANI)
