Freedom Forum hails Nepal's first-elect President Dr Ram Baran Yadav's statement that press freedom would be one of the guiding principles in the nation's move towards building a new and democratic Nepal in the new context.
Taking charge of office on Wednesday following the swear-in ceremony, honorable President Dr Yadav told his deputies at the President's House that international standards of democracy, human rights as well as press freedom would be the foundation on which Nepal would set its future course.
On the occasion, the President also stressed on national unity, integrity, reconstruction and the peace process as the priorities before the nation.
