I would like to welcome you all to this press briefing today. May I take this opportunity to thank the Government of Nepal for the cooperation it has extended to me during my visit. Over the past three days I held discussions with the Prime Minister, political leaders, the Minister of Peace and Reconstruction, members of the Constituent Assembly, the Attorney-General, Army Chief, representatives of the National Human Rights Institutions and members of civil society. I am grateful for the warm welcome I received and for the very useful and important insights that I have been given regarding the human rights situation and evolving peace process in the country.
