Any forms of violence in the name of protest not acceptable: US
KATHMANDU: The United States has responded to the protests that are recently taking place in Nepal regarding the Millenium Challenge Compact(MCC).
US Ambassador to Nepal Randy Berry recently in a tweet said that the US will not accept any forms of violence in the name of protest.
“We are a strong supporter of free speech & public discourse based in fact, including on MCC. The right to express one’s views is intrinsic to democracy, and people must be allowed to peacefully share their views. Violence & incitement to violence are never acceptable”, he said.
The United States has set a deadline of February 28 for the ratification of MCC.
Cadres of various political parties in Nepal have been continuously protesting against MCC in the capital.
