She called attention to Europe Day and described it as a celebration of the European Union as a peace project built on universal principles and firmly rooted in the rules-based international system that was established in the wake of World War II.

Several events have been planned around Europe Day and the full week, commencing on May 8, according to the EU Delegation to Nepal, she said. The general topic will be multilateralism and the three pillars of the United Nations (human rights, peace and security, and development), with a focus on commerce and business as a driver of sustainable development, as we also commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
