Int’l community being misguided about constitution: DPM Thapa

Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Kamal Thapa has said that there have been organized efforts to spread misleading information about Nepal’s new constitution and the recent political developments among international communities.

Thapa, who came back from a 10-day visit of United States of America (USA) and the United Kingdom (UK), on Friday, said that he had read equally blemished acuities in the US and the UK about the constitution.

Talking to the journalists at Tribhuvan International Airport upon his arrival in Kathmandu subsequent to wrapping up his visit to the two countries, DPM Thapa said that he found that a faction of individuals are intentionally active to make false impression about Nepal’s new constitution among international communities.

“All the diplomats and officials we met in both the countries expressed their concerns on the new constitution and the recent political developments in similar tone. And we realized that there has been efforts to spread misconceptions about the latest political developments,” he said.

Thapa, however, claimed that he has successfully cleared misunderstanding about the new constitution in his recent visits to the United States and the United Kingdom.

“US and UK officials let me know that they were happy to see the constitutional development in Nepal,” said Thapa, who had held talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry and UK ministers of state and commonwealth office.

In his meetings with the British officials, Thapa also raised the issue of Nepal Army Col Kumar Lama, who is under house arrest in the UK on insurgency-era charges, and the issue of British Gurkhas.
