Sunsari, April 1

Chinese envoy to Nepal Yu Hong today said Chinese border points connecting Province 1 would come into operation pronto.

Speaking at a programme organised by Dharan Sub-metropolis to felicitate her, Hong held that China would make China-Nepal trade easy and smooth by opening Sankhuwasabha’s Kimathanka and Taplejung’s Olangchungola border points in Province 1. “Though it is very hard to open border points between Nepal and China, China is positive about opening these border points with Nepal,” Hong added.

Hong reiterated that since opening the border points between the two countries would facilitate people’s movement and trade, China was positive about opening border points between the two countries.

Hong said China wanted to see stability and prosperity during KP Sharma Oli’s leadership in Nepal. She said China would provide significant assistance to Nepal for its development and progress. Ambassador Hong stated that China wanted to increase its assistance to Nepal to help rebuild the country battered by the 2015 earthquakes.
