KATHMANDU, April 17 (Xinhua) — Nepal on Saturday strongly rejected a recent annual report released by the United States which had painted a bleak picture of human rights situation in Nepal.
The report released by the U.S. Department of State on April 13 claimed that the Himalayan country’s human rights situation had not been encouraging in 2015.
The report entitled “Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2015” mentioned that there were serious problems in Nepal regarding implementation of principles of human rights.
“There is no any violence or conflict in Nepal at present. We are in the phase of implementation of the new Constitution and giving priority for the post-earthquake reconstruction and working to bring new fiscal year budget as well as policies and programs. In such a situation, the uncalled for comments from foreign countries against our internal human rights situation are undesirable,” Nepalese government Spokesman Sher Dhan Rai told reporters in Kathmandu on Saturday while referring to the U.S. report.
The government spokesman said that Nepal’s wants to have cordial relationship with all foreign countries and seeks their goodwill and support in achieving economic prosperity.
