UN Nepal mission closes making “significant contribution” to peace process

The United Nations mission in Nepal, UNMIN, is ending with the chief of the mission saying it has contributed significantly to the peace process.

UNMIN UNMIN was established in 2007 to assist the Himalayan country in its transition to peace after a decade-long insurgency mounted by Maoist rebels against the Nepalese monarchy.

Political instability continues, but Karin Landgren, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Representative in Nepal and Head of UNMIN, says the mission has made a difference.

“Although the process is still incomplete, the Mission has performed its mandated tasks, and has, I am convinced, contributed significantly to the peace process. The mission has faced high expectations from the public and the parties, well beyond its limited mandate, as core political disputes can only be resolved by the parties themselves.”
