The foreign ministry said there was no border dispute with China. At a press conference organized by the Ministry on Thursday, Foreign Spokesperson Seva Lamsal said that a meeting of the Home Secretary-level security mechanism was recently held between Nepal and China.
“We have no border dispute with China. A recent Home Secretary-level meeting discussed how to exchange information between the two sides.
During Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s visit to Nepal in the last week of March, it was agreed that a joint team would monitor the border in mutual consultation. According to the Nepal-China border treaty, it was agreed to monitor the border between the two countries to keep it calm and without tension.
Six months ago, the government led by Sher Bahadur Deuba sent a government team led by Home Ministry Joint Secretary Jayanarayan Acharya to Humla to conduct a field study to resolve the border issue with China.
A team led by Acharya had prepared a report stating that there was a border problem in Humla and for that, joint border supervision with China should be done.
The report, which has been kept secret till now, was sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the Home Ministry. After that, the Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Hou Yanchi clarified that there is no border dispute with Nepal.
This was interpreted as a response by the disgruntled Chinese ambassador to the Nepalese government to make the border dispute a matter of debate. Although the previous KP Sharma Oli-led government has said that there is no border problem with China, the Deuba-led government has been saying that there is a problem.
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Lamsal said that a high-level visit was expected from both sides on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Nepal and the United States.
However, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kelly Kyderling noted that a three-day visit from April 19 to 21 and a six-member high-level US parliamentary delegation led by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand visited Nepal from April 22.
He recently visited Nepal with the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Dr Tedros Adhanom said the visit to Gabrias was a success. She appreciated Nepal’s progress in the health sector.
‘During the visit, Dr Tedros highly commended Nepal for enshrining health as a fundamental right in its constitution and for its progress in infrastructure development, including health, ‘she said.
According to spokesperson Lamsal, Energy Minister Pampha Bhusal is visiting Bangladesh to attend the BBIN Energy Ministerial Forum.
At the press conference, spokesperson Lamsal mentioned that President Vidyadevi Bhandari addressed the recently concluded Boao Forum in China through virtual media.
