Amid protests against it by Maoists, Nepal on Friday said that the government is committed to taking the country's peace process to its logical end by forging unity and cooperation among political parties.
Speaking at a function organised by Indian embassy in Kathmandu to mark the anniversary of Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) Nepal's Foreign Minister Sujata Koirala said the government is committed towards taking the peace process to the logical end and drafting the constitution on time.
"For that we will forge broader political consensus, unity and cooperation among the political parties," she added.
The former rebels have been boycotting all events attended by the President, Prime Minister and ministers as part of their months-long agitation started after a stand-off between Prachanda and President Ram Baran Yadav over the reinstated of former army chief General Rukmangad Katawal.
On Thursday Maoists cadres breached tight security and waved black flags to President Ram Baran Yadav and Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal and clashed with the police during a convocation ceremony at Nepal's Tribhuvan University in Kathmandu.
