Chinese President Xi Jinping is paying a state visit to Nepal today and tomorrow. The visit of the Chinese head of the state to Nepal is taking place after a gap of 23 years. Jiang Zemin (who celebrated his 93rd birthday two months ago) was the last Chinese president to visit Kathmandu. President Jiang is taken as the third but the first successful Chinese leader promoted by paramount leader Deng Xiaoping.
