With the objective of pressing the political parties to work together to meet the demands that people of Nepal have expressed for change and peace an EU troika delegation will visit Nepal from December 3 to 6.
"The aim of the visit is to express continued EU support for Nepal's peace process and to encourage the parties to work together to meet the demands that the people of Nepal have expressed for change and peace. An essential part of this will include free and fair elections," states a press release by the EU.
"The Troika will offer its support to the Government to put in place the key building blocks of the peace process to enable credible elections at the earliest opportunity. These include improvement of public security, discussion on the future of Maoist combatants, an end to impunity for human rights abuses, progress on development and dialogue with marginalised groups," it adds.
