Kathmandu (RSS): Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and Chinese Defense Minister Wei Feng have expressed similar views on moving forward with the implementation of the agreement reached between the two countries.

Chinese Defense Minister Fenghe, who is on a visit to Nepal, had a meeting with Prime Minister Oli at the PM’s residence in Baluwatar. As reported by Rastriya Samachar Samiti (RSS), during the meeting, the Prime Minister informed that the ‘Trade and Transit Agreement’ reached during his visit to China in 2016 and the agreements reached during other bilateral high-level visits were being implemented.

According to Rajan Bhattarai, Foreign Affairs Advisor to Prime Minister Oli, the Prime Minister recalled the historic and successful visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Nepal last year and pledged not to allow Nepal’s land to be used against China.

Prime Minister Oli, who is in charge of the Ministry of Defense, thanked China for its assistance in developing the infrastructure of telecommunication, railways, electricity, economic and social sectors in Nepal.

In response, Chinese Minister Wei said that there was no problem in the implementation of the agreement with Nepal. He also said that since both the countries are in favor of peace, relations between one country and another should not be linked to the relations of third countries. Minister Wei reminded that China is also in favor of regional and international peace.

According to Bhattarai, Minister Weiley also discussed the issue of providing additional military assistance during his meeting with Chief of Army Staff Purnachandra Thapa.
