(RIP) Nepali statesman G.P. Koirala dies at 86

I am saddened by the news that Nepal's former prime minister, Girija Prasad Koirala has passed away at 86. We met in Kathmandu in 1993 and exchanged observations as well as reflections on social economy. May I express my sympathy to the family of Mr. Koirala as well as the People and Government of Nepal who are striving for a better future.
