KATHMANDU: Nepal has voted in favor of the United Nations (UN) non-binding resolution that condemns Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The resolution calls for Russia to end its hostilities in its neighbor and withdraw its forces from Ukraine.

Nepal taking part in an emergency Special General Assembly held in the UN Headquarters in New York on Thursday voted in favor of the resolution that calls for restoration of peace in Ukraine.

A total of 141 nations, out of 193 UN member countries, backed the resolution approved by the UN General Assembly on the eve of the first anniversary of the invasion. Through the resolution, the UN has urged Russia to withdraw its troops from Ukraine.

Nepal’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Amrit Rai said Nepal’s backing the UN resolution to end hostilities in Ukraine sends a strong message that is in favour of Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence. “Through the voting, we urged for finding ways for restoring peace in Ukraine.”

The UN has expressed its concerns over increasing food insecurity, inflation and poverty due to disruptions in the global supplies chain owing to Russia’s hostilities in Ukraine since a year.

Russia launched its attacks on Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Though a large score of people are believed to have been the victims of the conflict, official data to this regard is not available.

When 141 nations including Nepal supported the resolution, 32 abstained and seven: Belarus, North Korea, Eritrea, Mali, Nicaragua, Syria and Russia voted against it.
