KATHMANDU,11 sept 09
A French parliamentary team which is on a seven-day visit to Nepal has shown interest in the constitution-making and peace processes in Nepal.

They enquired about the latest progress, obstructions and other challenges in the constitution-writing process. "They also asked whether the country is adopting presidential or prime ministerial system. But, I said these things are yet to be decided and lawmakers are divided over the matter," Nembang said.

French Senators Yvon Collin, Simon Sutour and Jean Faure, French Ambassador to Nepal Gilles Henry Garault and administrator for the senators Philippe Brault, among other members, are in the visiting team.
