UN official to visit Nepal amid escalating tensions

176 Days ago

Kathmandu: Amid escalating political tensions in Nepal, UN Under-Secretary-General Jeffrey Feltman will be arriving in Kathmandu on Thursday on a three-day visit.

Tara Prasad Pokharel, spokesman of Nepal's foreign affairs ministry, told Xinhua news agency on Wednesday that Feltman is scheduled to hold meetings with various political leaders.

The visit comes at a time when the government and the agitating Madhesi parties are engaged in intense negotiations to end the more than four-month-old anti-Constitution protests in the country's southern Terai plains.

Over 55 people, including ten police personnel, have been killed in the protests. (IANS)
