US Worry Over Nepal Maoists’ Protest Programs
Telegraph Nepal, October 28, 2009
The lone Super Power, the United States of America, has exhibited its serious concern over the program of protests very freshly made public by the Unified Maoist party.
US Charge d’ Affaires Mr. Jeffrey Moon called on Maoist Chairperson Mr. Pushpa Kamal Dahal alias Prachanda at the latter’s residence in Nayabazar, Kathmandu, today, 28 October, 2009. During the meet, Mr. Moon expressed his country’s anxiety and concern over the likelihood of the confrontation with the State in course of the Maoist protests that begins November 1, 2009.
However, Prachanda’s personal secretariat has said that senior Maoist leader assured the US envoy that his party was still committed to the conclusion of the peace process and for the draft of the new constitution on time. Sources further say that Prachanda and Moon have had serious discussions over the prolonged political crisis prevailing in the country.
Earlier, Mr. Moon had called on Nepalese Congress (NC) leader Mr. Ramchandra Poudel, 27 October, 2009, wherein they both apparently discussed the ongoing political deadlock in the country and also on the internal turmoil that NC is undergoing through of late.
Mr. Moon is leaving soon upon completion of his Nepal tenure.
