Kathmandu, Nov 20 (UNI) The Nepal Government has decided to extend the term of United Nations Mission In Nepal (UNMIN) by another six months from January 22.

''The necessary letter to the UN will be sent by mid-December,'' said Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sahana Pradhan after the meeting of the cabinet.

UNMIN has been monitoring the peace process signed between the government of Nepal and the Maoists.

The Maoists raised the armed rebellion in 1996 to establish Nepal as a republic and signed an agreement with major six parties of the country to hold election to the constituent assembly and abolish the autocratic monarchy in the Himalayan nation.

The King has been suspended ending his autocratic rule and many democratic reforms have been made since then.
