Nepal government closes down UN-DPA office with immediate effect
The UNMIN was formally entrusted the responsibility in January, 2007, after the government and the Maoists signing a peace accord, and Maoists declaring that it had given up decades long politics of arms.

  The UNMIN was formally entrusted the responsibility in January, 2007, after the government and the Maoists signing a peace accord, and Maoists declaring that it had given up decades long politics of arms.

The Nepal government last week closed down the United Nations’ Department of Political Affairs (UN-DPA) that was active, at times controversially, here for the past seven years as a residue of the UN Mission to Nepal assisting the peace process.

Following a cabinet decision, a letter was handed over to the UN Headquarter in New York, with a copy here to the UN country office, with a fait acompli that the office has been closed down with ‘immediate effect’ giving three months exit time to its staff.
