Kathmandu, March 3

A day after they formed talks teams, the government and the Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’-led communist party held a brief meeting in Kathmandu on Wednesday morning.

Details of the meeting have not been made public, but Rajan Bhattarai, a member of the government’s talks team, says on a Facebook post that the meeting ended on a positive note.

“They have ended the meeting to sit together again,” another source says.

Earlier on Tuesday, the government has assigned Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa and the prime minister’s foreign affairs advisor Rajan Bhattarai for the talks. In response, the party which has been banned by the government for the past two years owing to its involvement in terrorist activities also formed a team consisting of its leader Khadga Bahadur Bishwakarma and Udaya Bahadur Chalaune.
