Kathmandu, June 25:

Minister of Information and Communications Tanka Dhakal today said that relation between Nepal and China is exemplary. “Consistency in cordial relationship between the two countries without any enmity and illusion in any point of time in history has remained an example in the world,” Dhakal said while speaking at a function organised by the National Council of Chinese Radio International (CRI) Listeners’ Clubs (NCCRILC). Chinese ambassador to Nepal Sun Heping and Minister Dhakal jointly released a souvenir “The Journey of Three Decades” published by the NCCRILC to mark the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the NCCRILC.

Minister Dhakal said CRI clubs were playing an important role to explore relations from the diplomatic level to people-to-people level. “The non-interference policy of China in Nepal’s internal matters has strengthened ties between the two countries,” he said, adding that Nepal should learn many things from China, which has achieved remarkable growth in its economy.

Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Sun Heping said that Nepal-China friendship is not only confirmed to the fundamental interests of the two countries’ people, but also is conducive to peace and stability in the region. “It is the set policy of the Chinese government to further consolidate and strengthen the good-neighbourly partnership between China and Nepal,” he said. Cultural expert Satya Mohan Joshi said that relations between the two countries have remained ideal and Nepal can gain a lot from the cordial friendship. According to the NCCRILC, there are 500 CRI listeners’ Clubs and 500,000 CRI listeners in Nepal. Nepal and China are preparing to celebrate the golden jubilee to mark 50 years of diplomatic ties.
