By Bhola B Rana

Kathmandu, 27 Sept: Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal Saturday addressed a sparsely attended 64th session of the UN general assembly in New York.
Nepal Television footage showed empty seats in the assembly hall as the prime minister delivered his address.
The address was essentially a briefing to UM member states on the current political, economic and environmental state of Nepal.
Nepal presented a rosy political picture of the grave political situation in the country.

He said the government will attempt to take the peace process with Maoists to a logical conclusion; he also told the assembly Nepal had been adversely affected by climate change.
Nepal’s flies back home Monday to celebrate dasain.
