The Heads of Mission in Nepal express their support and encouragement for efforts to resolve the current difficulties affecting the supply and distribution of humanitarian supplies in the country, particularly of goods urgently needed for the adaptation of temporary shelters to the coming winter.

According to a press release issued by European Union, the effects of this situation are most heavily felt by the poorest segments of the population, including in the Terai. The lack of basic goods is taking a heavy toll on the economy of Nepal, where recent earthquakes have pushed an additional 3.5% of the population under the poverty line, according to the estimates of the Post-Disaster Needs Assessment.

The Heads of Mission hope for a prompt solution of this situation. The ongoing talks represent a unique opportunity to make progress in this direction and the Heads of Mission encourage all involved to take advantage of it in a spirit of responsibility and compromise.
