By Zeenews

Nepal Foreign Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali, who is in Delhi, on Friday said that Kathmandu believes in good relations with both New Delhi and Beijing and is keen to use its geography as an opportunity. In response to a question during his only public meet during a three-day visit, Gyawali said, “Nepal has always maintained good relations with our both neighbours (India and China). We never compare our relationship with our friends.”

He explained “being located between the two largest markets of the global speaks a volume…It provides us to be benefited by the fastest economic growth of our neighbouring countries..that is why we are strengthening our relations with neighbouring countries but we never compare our relations.”

China has increased its foray in Nepal, even as the country has had much-celebrated ties with India based on “roti beti ka rishta” (family ties). Beijing, under the KP Sharma Oli govt and the erstwhile united Nepal communist party saw a lot of high-level exchanges including a visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Meanwhile, India’s focus, even amid the new Nepal map row was continued people to people exchange.
