Minister Pandey expressed so when a six-member Chinese delegation led by Vice-Governor of Shanxi Province of China, Yao Yinliang, paid him a courtesy call at the Ministry today.

In the meeting, Minister Pandey also expressed gratitude to China for its help on rescue, relief and reconstruction works in the aftermath of the Gorkha earthquake in Nepal.
