The Kathmandu-based EU Missions together with Embassies of Norway and Switzerland expressed disappointment over the failure of the political parties to agree on a new constitution and urged them to forge consensus for peace, stability and constitution.
"We express our disappointment over the failure of the political parties to agree on a new constitution, which resulted in the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly on 27 May. We are concerned by the possibility of prolonged political uncertainty and the effect this could have on Nepal's socio-economic development," said a statement issued by the Embassy of Denmark representing the EU on Thursday.
The EU missions called on all the political parties to build consensus on the way forward, preserve the achievements of the past four years and find a solution to the legal problems at hand which is acceptable to all and in the best interest of the country.
"We believe that respect for fundamental democratic principles is essential to guarantee that the aspiration of Nepal's citizens for peace, stability, and prosperity is met," the Kathmandu-based EU missions said while reaffirmeing their continuing support to efforts by the political parties to find ways and build the necessary trust to conclude the peace agreement they reached in 2006, and deliver a democratic and inclusive constitution. nepalnews.com
