“We have been in communication with the Nepali side through the diplomatic channel about high-level exchanges between the two countries,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson of Hua Chunying during a regular press briefing on Monday.
Some media reports in Nepal and India of late suggested that Chinese President Xi would not visit Nepal in October as discussed earlier.
