Nepal Peace Accord Signing is on Horizon

The decade-long conflict in Nepal is ending, according to a statement by the Nepal Tourism Board. A six-point agreement has been agreed upon by the Seven-Party Alliance and the CPN-Maoist (Communist Party of Nepal), it says, with the agreement reached on November 8, local time. The two groups will sign a peace accord by November 16, it adds, and by November 21, all the Maoist fighters will go to seven cantonment areas. An interim constitution will be announced by November 26, and an interim government formed by December 1. As part of the agreement, all the Maoists' weapons will be locked up; a similar number of Nepali Army weapons also will be secured. "It is believed," the tourism board says, "that with the commitment from all sides for long-lasting peace, Nepal's tourism industry is bound to... leap in near future." Visit [www.welcomenepal.com].
