China has excellent relations with our friends in Nepal and want nothing but the best for the country. We do NOT recognise these people as "Maoist" but are simply anti-Government forces. China, while not criticising the Nepalese royalty takeover, want swift reconciliation so a sensible government can be formed.
India asks why does China not recognise these rebels as Maoists? They show all the traits, and have publicly admitted to supporting Maoism.
China asks why India is so keen that China recognises these people as Maoists. Surely India is not an advocate?
Anyway, China feels these rebels abuse the ideology espoused by General Mao.
Now we would appreciate India talk about the matter at hand and not turning this into an Anti China thread.
India is not an advocate of the rebels, we are advocating the introduction of democracy to Nepal. We feel that the matter in hand is discussing this with China, and is not an anti-China thread.
China is doing all it can to help the Nepalese government. That does not have anything to do with us recognising them as Maoist.
India still insists that they are Maoist rebels, despite what China may believe. They are recognised as Maoist rebels by most of the world's nations.
Since we're quibbling on smaller details rather than the real issue, China would like to ask India whythese anti-government force leaders in Nepal can easily reach Western reporters based in India, evading Indian security agencies.
India did not intend for this thread to turn into a mud slinging, but only reiterated to China's comments. India would like China to know we are dealing with the above issues... and don't even get us started on democracy and censorship in China!
If China wishes to tell us their thoughts on the issue, India would be more than happy.
Brazil hopes to promote peace in the area -
India condemns the killing of anti-Monarchist protestors, and uses this as another example of why democracy is needed in Nepal.
Switzerland hopes that indiscriminate use of security forces on both rebels and civilians ceases and suggests that the Maoist rebels could be given a role in Nepal's democracy ,then the King could give some of his role to democratically elected representatives. Switzerland believes however that this country is not beyond reason and should be able to find a peaceful remedy.
Can someone explain:- How's the king able to hold power without forming a government? Doesn't this violate the constitution?
I think he declared a state of emergency
He did in february 05 I think
