That’s what United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says in his latest report to the Security Council on the UN Mission in the country (UNMIN) which ends on 15 January this year.

The United Nations has been monitoring the 2006 agreement which ended the civil war between the Maoists and government forces and provided for elections to an assembly to write a new constitution.

The head of UNMIN, Karin Landgren, says that the mission is encouraging the early resolution to contribute to its orderly departure and give the people of Nepal confidence that the peace process is on track.

“Nepal’s peace process has remained largely deadlocked following the resignation of Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal in June 2010. There has been little progress on the most critical issues of forming a new government, and integrating and rehabilitating the personnel of the Maoist army. Some progress has been made on the new constitution but it may be difficult to meet the promulgation deadline of 28 May 2011.”
