KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said there is a long history of friendly and people-to-people cooperative relations between Nepal and China.

“The two countries have economic, cultural and people-level relations since ancient times. Friendship, mutual respect, understanding and appreciation of each other’s reasonable concerns and sensitivities create the foundation of good-neighborly relation,” the Prime Minister said.

He also expressed happiness over the further expansion of the bilateral ties between Nepal and China.

PM Dahal said this while addressing the program organized here today to hand over the Surgical Building of the Civil Service Hospital to the Government of Nepal. The building was constructed with Chinese assistance.

He expressed confidence that with the expanded and improved infrastructure and services, the hospital will be capable of providing smooth and quality services to patients seeking better medical services.

“I would like to thank the government of the People’s Republic of China for supporting this special project of this hospital and its upgrading and reconstruction,” he added.

Stating that China has consistently extended cooperation in Nepal’s development endeavors, the PM said,” The assistance we have received has been of additional help for the construction of development infrastructures, for expanding the connectivity, for providing accessible health facilities to Nepalis, for development of human resources and for easing the livelihood.”

He stated that the Civil Service Hospital stands also as the symbol of cordial ties between the two countries for decades and commended China’s assistance provided for building and expanding health infrastructures and the required health equipment and medical logistics in the health facilities.

PM Dahal thanked the Government of PRC also for providing assistance in the construction of the cancer hospital in Bharatpur. He expressed gratitude for the continued support by China in this sector.

Noting that many Nepali medical professionals, including doctors, are studying in various universities in China, he said those who have returned home after completing their studies in China have been providing outstanding service.

“We always recall this generosity and the genuine solidarity from our close neighbors and friendly country China,” he said, expressing thankfulness for the support like the anti-Covid vaccine, essential medical equipment and other emergency health logistics that China provided during the COVID-19 pandemic. We were able to tide over the hardship of the pandemic due to the cooperation provided by China and other development partners.

Reiterating Nepal’s desire to further expand ties with China as the closest neighbors, good friend and reliable partner, the Prime Minister said Nepal should be able to benefit from China’s big leap in social and economic development along with medical science and technology.

He stressed the need of ensuring Nepalis’ access to health, expanding additional services and constructing infrastructures. The PM stated that the government is committed to developing the Civil Service Hospital as a specialist hospital with expanded infrastructures and services.
