PM wants parties in Nepal talks

Kathmandu, Aug. 3 (AFP): Nepal’s Prime Minister Surya Bahadur Thapa has instructed officials to invite political party leaders to the proposed third round of peace talks between the Maoists and the government, officials said today.

“Accordingly, the official team on behalf of Prime Minister Surya Bahadur Thapa (Picture above) will call on leaders of all major political parties represented in the dissolved parliament,” a cabinet source said.

The leaders of the major political parties — including president of the Nepali Congress Girija Prasad Koirala and the general secretary of the Nepal Communist Party-United Marxist and Leninist — have already said they will not cooperate with the government.

Maoist leader Pushpa Kamal Dahal last Thursday called on the official peace team to include the country’s major political parties in the next round of talks.
