Nepal: Solidarity brings prospect of permanent peace (Web feature)
This article, by Dikshya Thakuri (human rights correspondent at The Himalayan Times, an English daily in Nepal), reflects on the "historic victory" of the Nepalese people gained after a nineteen-day mass movement for democracy that claimed many lives. The declaration of truce by both the government and Maoists and the ongoing peace talks have been welcomed by all concerned. The outcome of the first round of peace talks was the 25-point code of conduct.
