KATHMANDU, Sept 29: Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Yu Hong has said Nepal and China have maintained healthy relations under the principles of equality, mutual benefit and mutual respect.
“Since the beginning of this year, the cooperation between the two countries has been further strengthened with the joint efforts of both sides,” she said while addressing the 69th National Day reception hosted by Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu on Friday. She said that frequent exchanges of high-level visits have helped further strengthen the relations.
“The two countries have made fruitful cooperation achievements in various fields. Particularly, Nepal Prime Minister KP Oli made a successful official visit to China last June,” said Yu. “The two sides will strengthen cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative and build the trans-Himalayan Multi-Dimensional Connectivity Network.”
The two sides signed a number of cooperation agreements including the Economic and Technical Cooperation Agreement, she added.
“Last month, the two side reached consensus on the Protocol of Transit Transport Agreement. Not long ago, we welcomed with pleasure two pairs of rhinoceros gifted to China by the government of Nepal and people of Nepal,” she said. “They are envoys of friendship from Nepal. I strongly believe that China-Nepal relations and cooperation will reach a new height with joint efforts of both sides.”
