Foreign and Commonwealth Office (UK)
Lord Malloch-Brown on the first session of the Constituent Assembly of Nepal
Lord Malloch-Brown said:
"The UK warmly congratulates the people of Nepal on the successful conduct of the first session of the Constituent Assembly. This is another step towards the democratic and stable future that the people of Nepal justly deserve.
I look forward to the Constituent Assembly beginning its work of drafting a constitution that reflects the needs of the people and that will guide Nepal in the years to come. I urge all parties to respect the mandate given to them following elections in April and to continue working in the spirit of their previous agreements during this important period of forming a new government and establishing the Constituent Assembly."
