KATHMANDU: The U.S. Embassy in Kathmandu on Wednesday hosted a Summit for Democracy supporting event on the eve of the Summit, which will bring together leaders from government, civil society, and the private sector to set forth an affirmative agenda for democratic renewal December 9-10.

U.S. Ambassador to Nepal, Randy Berry, USAID Mission Director Sepideh Keyvanshad, Nepali leaders, activists, civil society members, and youth advocates discussed opportunities and challenges for social, political, and economic inclusion in Nepal and other democratic countries.

Addressing the event, Ambassador Berry highlighted the achievements Nepal made in the recent years, “In many ways Nepal serves as a model for the region and the world.”

He added, “Within the last 15 years, Nepal has progressed through a violent Maoist conflict, subsequent peace process, the return of democratic governance, and the ratification of a constitution that defined Nepal as a secular, democratic, and federal government.”

Participants also discussed the historical and recent events within the United States that have tested – and reaffirmed – the strength of its democracy.

U.S. President Joe Biden will commemorate Human Rights Day by convening the first Summit for Democracy.

The Summit will focus on three pillars and shared values of democratic nations:  fighting corruption, countering authoritarianism, and promoting human rights.

Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba will represent Nepal at the invitation of President Biden.
