FM Pandey in Chinese capital
Mar 17, 2015-
At the invitation of the Chinese government, Foreign Minister Mahendra Bahadur Pandey reached Beijing on Tuesday for an official visit.
He will hold bilateral talks with his counterpart Wang Yi on Wednesday in the Chinese Foreign Ministry and will meet senior Chinese leaders during his stay in the northern neighbour.
The visit is focussed mainly on the forthcoming visit of President Ram Baran Yadav to China. It is also a follow-up to the Nepal visit of Chinese Foreign Minister Wang in December last year. Other agendas include Nepal-China economic cooperation and marking the 60th anniversary of Nepal-China diplomatic ties, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
President Yadav leaves on March 24 to attend the annual Boao Forum for Asia. Nepal has formed a high-level committee under Minister Pandey to identify activities to mark the year.
