Nov 4, 2015-

The United States has said it was closely following the situation in Nepal and“encourages all Nepalis to continue to engage in the democratic process through peaceful and nonviolent means.”

Responding to a query on Nepal’s situation after the Birgunj incident, during a regular press briefing at the State Department in Washing-ton on Monday, Director of Press Office Elizabeth Trudeau said,

“We have seen those reports of violence and we are aware of the reports.”

“We extend our condolences to the family and loved ones of the deceased. And we call on Nepali security forces to exercise appropriate restraint as people exercise their democratic rights,” she said.

“We urge Nepal’s leaders to reach an accommodation that builds the broadest possible support for the constitution.”
