CHENGDU: Foreign Minister NP Saud dubbed the official visit of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ to China as a total success.

A member of the Prime Minister’s delegation, Minister Saud said that the Prime Minister’s visit was successful from both an economic and diplomatic point of view.

He stated that the bilateral meetings held with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Li Qiang were important, and the agreements reached between the two countries were also in favor of Nepal’s interests and economic development.

“The outcomes of the 13 agreements reached between the two countries, including the agreement to open all the traditional border crossings, will benefit Nepal in the future,” he noted.

The Foreign Minister said that during the visit, it was agreed that both countries would work through a joint team for inspections in the border area.

In order to reduce Nepal’s trade deficit with China, agricultural products can be produced and exported to China.

For this, he mentioned that an important agreement had been reached to introduce advanced methods of breeding yaks, cows, and other domesticated animals in Nepal.

“This agreement is a crucial issue in the context of the development of the agricultural sector, and it will help export Nepal’s agricultural produce to China and open up agriculture-based industries in Nepal,” Minister Saud said.

Nepal has been taking initiatives with the Chinese government for subsidies on some exportable products for a long time, and discussions held in a positive light in this regard are an achievement of the visit.

Stating that the President and Prime Minister of China gave high importance to Nepal during the visit and Nepal also clearly presented issues regarding its interests and concerns at the highest level, Minister Saud said intensive discussions on various issues have created a new understanding between the two countries.

“The Prime Minister was given a guard of honor in a formal program. A joint statement was issued covering important matters of mutual interest between the two countries. Both the President and the Prime Minister gave due importance, leading to a new understanding. Hence, I regard this visit as fully successful,” he emphasized.

However, the current priority is the economic aspect, and Nepal benefiting from China to become economically strong is an important and strong aspect of the relationship between the two countries.

According to Minister Saud, the visit to Kailash Mansarovar during the visit was not only to see the place but also to promote Nepal’s religious tourism.

On-site studies of the area were carried out to create a suitable environment for millions of Hindu pilgrims from around the world, including India, to visit Kailash Mansarovar.

Minister Saud said that in addition to Simkot in Humla, Urai in Bajhang, and Tinkar in Darchula are also being studied for accessible roads to reach from Nepal to Kailash Mansarovar.

China wants to help Nepal in the fields of agriculture, technology, and other areas of investments, so this visit was also fruitful to increase understanding and advance necessary diplomatic initiatives towards that, said Minister Saud.
