According to Tuesday's The Rising Nepal, Nepal asked the two envoys Monday, who represent the UN Security Council permanent member countries, to extend their support to Nepal's candidate Kul Chandra Gautam for the post.

He also sought their advice on the extension of UNMIN's term in Nepal.

"The envoys were positive about Nepal's desire to lead the UN Assembly for 2011- 2012," PM's foreign affairs advisor Rajan Bhattarai told the media.

They also informed that they sent the letter of Nepal to the heads of their respective nations regarding the Nepal's request to support Gautam.

On the extension of the UNMIN's tenure, they said that it was the internal affair of Nepal.

"Nepal should take decision on the fate of UNMIN based on consensus among the parties," Bhattarai quoted the two envoys as telling to the PM.&
