Kathmandu, 23 Oct: Defence Minister Bidya Bhandari demanded a review of the comprehensive peace agreement (CPA) between seven parties and Maoists despite UN objections.
“The CPA had aimed to resolve within six months after formation of the government following the constituent assembly elections.
“It was signed under an entirely different political equation.
“But six months have passed and the political equation has changed, and I have floated the idea of the revision of CPA.” The Kathmandu Post quoted Bhandari as saying.
UNMIN Chief Karin Landgren Thursday told Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal the CPA should be implemented and not reviewed.
The agreement brokered by India is vague and parties have interpreted clauses to suit their interests.
