CHITWAN, Feb 12: Spokesperson of the ruling Nepali Congress Dr Prakash Sharan Mahat has said that all assistance providing countries should be looked at from the same point of view. 

Talking to the media persons in Chitwan on Saturday, Spokesperson Mahat noted that the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Compact Agreement should be taken in the same way as we did for the projects of other countries. He said that it would be unfair judgment in foreign relations while seeing cooperation of other countries and MCC through different lenses. 

“Accepting aid on the basis of unfair criteria for each country leads to imbalance in foreign relations which may also cause a threat to the country,” said Dr Mahat. 

He argued that the MCC should be endorsed from the parliament without any confusion and delay, adding “There is a consensus on MCC among political parties representing the parliament. The MCC Compact Agreement was signed on the basis of Nepal's interest. It is a wrong tendency and trend to create problems.”

Dr Mahat mentioned that it is the responsibility of the Speaker to table the proposal introduced by the government. He further said the MCC issue would be resolved if it is discussed in the parliament.
