(Updated) KATHMANDU, April 28: A meeting of the three major parties--UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress (NC), CPN-UML along with the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) concluded without a breakthrough as the NC sought time for internal parleys.
Leaders claimed that the meeting concluded in a positive note. This was the second rounds of the talks among the parties on Saturday.
Earlier in the afternoon, Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal had expressed his confidence that the leaders will be able to forge consensus on the remaining issues today itself.
Leaders have even claimed that they were just an inch away from striking an agreement.
