font size    

Nepali Prime Minister Girija Rasa Koirala Wednesday evening announced an indefinite cease-fire with and removed the "terrorist" tag on the anti-government guerrillas.

The government also appealed to the guerrillas' leadership to come for peace talks.

This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.

The seven-member cabinet took this decision after a formal meeting in Kathmandu Wednesday.

According to sources the government has also decided to release the guerrillas who are under detention.

The guerrillas have already announced a three-month cease-fire on April 27, after King Gyanendra relinquished power and reinstated parliament.

This is the third time that both the guerrillas and the government have declared a truce.
