China urges Nepal to play constructive role in trilateral cooperation

Kathmandu, July 5 (IANS) Nepal should play a constructive role in the trilateral cooperation among China, India and Nepal, Chinese ambassador to Nepal Wu Chuntai said on Sunday.

“It’s time for Nepal to find the areas of cooperation, models of cooperation and especially projects of cooperation,” Xinhua quoted the Chinese envoy as saying at an event here.

He added that Nepal was very important for the three-party diplomatic relations.

Recalling Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s meeting with India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on the sidelines of the June 25 International Conference on Nepal’s Reconstruction in Kathmandu, Wu said an economic corridor among the three nations may create more opportunities, revenues and benefits.

“Reconstruction is an opportunity of social and economic development for the Himalayan nation in which Chinese initiatives like the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and ‘One Belt, One Road’ can be significant,” said the Chinese envoy.
