Other imperialist interests – Britain and the United States – are heavily involved via India. On the other hand, the EU`s desire to become an independent pole of international relations (despite its militaristic indecision) motivated it to welcome the unilateral ceasefire of the revolutionaries and the 12-point agreement, and to ask Gyanendra to make the ceasefire. In late 2004 or early 2005, relations between Prachanda and Baburam Bhattarai resumed. [18] This is believed to be due to differences of opinion on power-sharing within the party. Bhattarai was dissatisfied with the consolidation of power under Prachanda. At one point, Prachanda Bhattarai was expelled from the party, but was later reinstated. [19] Later, they reconciled at least some of their differences. [20] [21] Both express a deep sense of remorse and are frustrated by past mistakes and pledge not to repeat the same thing in the future. In accordance with the goal of peace, human rights and freedom of the press are fully in agreement. Both parties will boycott the municipal and legislative elections announced by the current regime, which were conducted with the sole aim of claiming legitimacy to govern. Both sides believe that it is their common duty to maintain friendly relations with the entire international community, particularly neighbouring countries such as India and China, which are based on the principles of peaceful coexistence. Through this agreement, both sides also call on all citizens in love with democracy and freedom to actively support their struggle. On 16 June 2006, Mr.

Prasad Koirala met with Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala, who was his first visit to Kathmandu, the capital, in more than a decade. [26] [27] This meeting resulted in the comprehensive peace agreement to dissolve Parliament, integrate the NPC (M) into a new transitional government, draft a new constitution and dissolve the „people`s governments“ of the NPC (M) active in rural Nepal. The two sides also agreed to disarm at a later date under international control. [28] On 18 September 2007, the NPC (M) left the coalition government before the election of the Constituent Assembly and called for the declaration of a Republic by Parliament and a proportional electoral system. The NPC (M) joined the government on 30 December 2007 following an agreement on the abolition of the monarchy after the elections and a system of partial representation of elections. [29] Maoist leader Krishna Bahadur Mahara claimed that a secret agreement had been reached on 24 April between the Alliance of Seven and the King, in which they would ensure that the king retained the monarchy in one form or another in the future. On 6 June 2006, Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala travelled to India for a four-day visit to support India in Nepal`s recent political changes. The Maoist president insisted that he not ask for economic assistance without resolving political differences inside the country and called for the release of Maoist prisoners languishing in Indian prisons soon. On the morning of June 14, Sitaula took a private helicopter to Siklis, a mountain village in the Kaski district. When Sitaula arrived, the CPN (Maoophone) was planning a mass meeting in the village.

After four hours of discussions with senior leaders, Sitaula completed preparations for his arrival in Kathmandu. Sitaula flew to Pokhara to receive Prachanda and Bhattarai.
