UNSC adopts Nepal resolution

The United Nations (UN) Security Council on Tuesday adopted a resolution tabled by Secretary General authorizing establishment of the United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN).
The resolution decided to dispatch a UN mission that will monitor implementation of the peace agreement and disarmament of parties in Nepal.
The UN political mission in Nepal, under the leadership of UN Secretary General's personal representative, Ian Martin, will have a 12-month mandate to monitor "the management of arms and armed personnel of both sides, in line with the provision of the comprehensive peace agreement." the Security Council said in adopting the resolution.
The UNMIN will have five mandates. The UN teams have already started verification of Maoist arms and armies.
