Bhutan is once again delaying on what seemed like some progress in the refugee repatriation talks. Nepali foreign ministry sources say the talks have effectively come to a "standstill" since Bhutan has not been acting on a compro-mise verification formula suggested by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). In late May, Bhutan had agreed to name a verification team that was to visit the Bhutanese refugee camps in eastern Nepal "very soon." But Thimpu has so far been ignoring Nepali re-quests to get on with it. The UN compromise formula suggested that both sides use a family as a unit of verifica-tion, and that the family should include all unmarried members under the age 25. Bhutan has insisted on individual verification, while Nepal has maintained that it be done on a family basis.
