UNITED NATIONS, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- The UN Department of Political Affairs on Friday marked the official closure of its Nepal Liaison Office, the UN spokesperson's office said.
The liaison office was established in 2011 following the closure of UN mission in Nepal.
Since it joined the UN in 1955, "Nepal has undergone several historic transformations towards peace, stability and prosperity," said the spokesperson's office in a note to the press.
For the past two decades, the UN has accompanied the government and Nepali leaders on the county's pathway to peace, it added.
"The UN is committed to continuing to work with Nepali political leaders and civil society on consolidating the peace agenda, including on broader human rights and development goals, towards a future of sustained peace and prosperity," it said.
