Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal has said that the government will give top priority to democracy and human rights while going about the task of fulfilling the people's aspirations.
Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of a regional high-level meeting on Rainwater Harvesting in Kathmandu Sunday, PM Nepal also expressed commitment to address all suggestions as well as complaints of the people as far as possible.
He also reiterated that the government is seriously on to the task of preparing the constitution by the stipulated time and take the peace process to its logical conclusion.
"Similarly, the government is also committed to establish the rule of law," he said.
Stating that Nepal is ready to cooperate with its neighbors to properly utilize the Himalayan nation's rich natural resources, the prime minister said that this will also work to bolster its relations with them.
He said though there is a great shortage of clean drinking water in the country, the target of the previous governments to make water accessible to all the people of the country by 2017 is very challenging.
But he said he has taken the current difficult situation of the country as an opportunity and expressed commitment to bring about "economic miracle" in the country.
About 150 experts, water technicians and representatives from all over South Asia are participating in the 3-day regional high-level meeting on Rainwater Harvesting. nepalnews.com June 28 09
