In his first visit to Europe, Maoist chairman Prachanda left for Switzerland on Saturday evening.
He said that he will discuss issues such as peace process, Constituent Assembly (CA) and federalism during his stay there.
Prachanda said that the visit will be helpful in developing international relations of the Maoists.
Talking to reporters at the Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA), Prachanda revealed that his party had good relations with Swiss government officials even during the peak of their conflict.
Another senior Maoist leader Dr. Baburam Bhattarai had already left for Norway a few days ago to take part in an international conference on conflict resolution. He is expected to travel to Switzerland also. nepalnews.com sd Jun 30 07
