In response to questions about the situation in Nepal, the Spokesman for the UN Secretary-General has reiterated the Secretary-General’s concern over the obstruction of essential supplies on the Nepal-India border.

According to a press release issued by United Nations Information Center, UN Secretary General said that acute shortages in fuel supplies continue to impede planned deliveries to earthquake-affected villages in Nepal. Humanitarian organizations urgently require fuel to maintain operations and deliver food, warm clothing and shelter materials to high altitude areas that will soon be cut off by harsh winter conditions.

He underlines Nepal’s right of free transit, as a landlocked nation as well as for humanitarian reasons, and calls on all sides to lift the obstructions without further delay.
