KATHMANDU: Balen Shah, the Mayor of Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC), has made the decision to cancel his planned visit to China.
This decision comes as a response to his concerns regarding China’s omission of Nepal’s updated map, known as the “chuche map,” from its recent revised version.
Mayor Balen was all set to embark on a journey to Beijing today, with the purpose of promoting tourism and facilitating cultural exchange.
This visit was extended as an invitation from the Chinese government itself.
However, due to the absence of Nepal’s new map in the version released by the Chinese government, Mayor Balen opted to call off his trip to China.
