India on Tuesday said it is against foreign interference in Nepal's peace process and constitution drafting process, as it vowed to facilitate the country's transition into an inclusive multi-party democracy.
India expects the key political parties in Nepal to take further positive steps in their common interest to achieve objectives of completing the peace process and constitution drafting process, country's Ambassador to Nepal, Jayanta Prasad said.
"It is a process to be determined by the people and the political parties of Nepal without any foreign interference," said Prasad during his first interaction with the media here, two months after assuming office.
"During the visit of Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai to India, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh expressed his full support to build consensus in Nepal for peace process and constitution rafting to facilitate Nepal's transition to an inclusive multi-party democracy," he pointed out.
At critical times in Nepal's current evolution the people have shown the resolve to solve their differences and work for a common national cause, he pointed out.
Prasad expressed confidence that Nepal will soon be able to attain integration and rehabilitation of the former Maoist combatants and the completion of the remaining elements of the peace process and the framing of the constitution.
"These will enable the Nepalese people to achieve greater level of stability, progress and inclusive growth which is exactly the objectives we have in India for our own development," Prasad said.
