NO INTERFERENCE



33 PARTIES INCLUDING CPN MAOIST  ASK INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY IN STRONG WORDS NOT TO INTERFERE

Kathmandu, 20 July: The bloc of 33 poll-opposing parties, led by CPN-Maoist-led, have appealed to the international community and diplomatic missions not to interfere in the internal matters of Nepal and eschew supporting the purported Constituent Assembly election. The Himalayan Times reports..

Writing an open letter on behalf of the 33 parties, CPN-Maoist Secretary Dev Gurung expressed concerns over some foreign diplomatic missions' recent statements over the constitution-drafting, Constituent Assembly and election. He said doing so interfered with Nepal's internal matter and that was against the UN charter, principles of Panchasheel and international diplomatic norms. "At present, we all have felt the activities and interference of international agencies," the letter said.

Saying the Constituent Assembly election was announced without political agreement, the letter said the election cannot bail out the country from the crisis but has invited bigger national crisis, and weakened the national sovereignty and democracy.

Acknowledging that the Nepali people, parties and communities are divided over the matter at present, the letter said the parties have concluded that the foreign friends' interference does not do good to the Nepalis as well as themselves.

"Thus, we appeal to the friendly countries and donor agencies to stop all the support to the Constituent Assembly election at the current state of affairs," it said, "And, we appeal to all the diplomatic agencies not to support the election which does not ensure the new constitution but is going to be held at the stake of national sovereignty and democratic system."

Addressing the first central council´s extended gathering of Joint Khas Kshetri Unification Coordination Committee in the capital on Saturday, JBR said that it would be unjust to the campaigners of country´s unification if attempts were made to move ahead on the roadmaps fixed by the foreigners.
