China delighted to see Nepali parties reach agreement on peace process


09:05, November 04, 2011

BEIJING, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- China is pleased to see that neighboring Nepal has reached an agreement on its peace process, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said Thursday at a press briefing.

"China welcomes the efforts made by relevant parties in Nepal to realize the long-lasting peace," Hong said.

"We sincerely hope Nepal will complete the peace and constitution-drafting process at an early date and realize peace, stability and development in the country," he said.

Nepal's major political parties reached a seven-point agreement concerning the peace process Tuesday evening.

Leaders of the Unified Communist Party of Nepal Maoists (UCPN-M), the Nepali Congress and the United Madhesi Front signed the deal that allows 6,500 UCPN-Maoists combatants to be integrated into the Nepal army. The youth-wing of the UCPN-M Youth Communist League will be dissolved, and the captured lands and properties of the general public, which were seized by the Maoists during the war, will be returned to the rightful owners by Nov. 23 with compensation.
