Want to push for continued advancement of China-Nepal ties: Xi

Aug 01, 2020 20:27 IST

Amid a border row with India, Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday said he wants to push for a continued advancement of ties with Nepal. Xi’s remark comes amidst Beijing’s sustained forays to shore up pro-China Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli’s grip on power in the backdrop of intra-party feud in the ruling communist party. In an exchange of congratulatory messages with his Nepalese counterpart Bidhya Devi Bhandari on the 65th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, Xi asserted that he was ready to work to bring greater benefits to the two peoples of the two neighbouring countries. The Chinese President said that he attaches great importance to the development of China-Nepal relations and is willing to work with his Nepali counterpart Bhandari to push for the continued advancement of the bilateral relationship.
