The United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) was established on 23 January 2007 through the adoption of resolution 1740 (2007). From 2007 to early 2011, the Department of Political Affairs (DPA) provided oversight and support to UNMIN, which assisted Nepal in its transition to peace following a decade of armed conflict. In accordance with Security Council Resolution 1939 (2010), UNMIN withdrew from Nepal on 15 January 2011. The United Nations will remain engaged in Nepal through the United Nations Country Team, and through the continued assistance of the DPA. Following the closure of UNMIN, the DPA is leading UN efforts to continue to support the successful completion of the peace process in Nepal.
