Kathmandu, Jan 18: Ahead of Nepalese Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli’s maiden India visit, Chi has apparently expressed concern over it, diplomatic sources here said. Earlier, there was expectation that Oli would embark on a maiden visit to Chi before India due to unrest in southern Nepal’s Tarai region and blockage of essential commodities’ supply from India. In a meeting between Chinese Vice Minister for intertiol relations Chen Fengxian and Nepalese minister Agni Sapkota in Beijing on Sunday, Chen inquired about Oli’s upcoming India visit and how it was going. Mentioning about his meeting with Chen, Sapkota said: “During my meeting with Chinese vice minister, he asked me about the upcoming visit of Prime Minister K.P. Oli to India.” Chen also asked when the visit was taking place, he added. “In response, I told the Chinese vice minister that we are holding talks with the Indian side in respect to the visit,” Sapkota said on Monday here upon his return from Chi. This concern was especially raised from Chinese side after speculation was rife in Kathmandu that Oli may break the tradition of visiting India first than Chi. (IANS)
