Nepali Delegation to UNHRC

Govinda Prasad Sharma Koirala, peace and human rights advisor to Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal, has represented Nepal in the 52nd Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

According to the Permanent Mission of Nepal to the United Nations, Koirala attended the opening session of the annual meeting of the human rights council.

The opening session was followed by the address from the heads of state as well as ministers and dignitaries from over 125 member states of the United Nations. Koirala is scheduled to address the High-level Segment of the Council today.

A Cabinet meeting had decided to send a delegation to Geneva led by the then Foreign Minister Bimala Rai Paudyal, but as per the instructions of the prime minister, she was forced to drop her travel plans. PM Dahal claimed that her visit was stopped because he feared that she might lose the ministerial post while abroad.

Along with Koirala, Secretary of the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers Udaya Raj Sapkota and Joint Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Sewa Lamsal have also reached Geneva to participate it.
