Prachanda To Visit India

Posted by Anup Baral September 7th, 2016 : In what is being seen as a setback to bilateral relations between the two countries, Chinese President Xi Jinping, who was expected to visit Nepal in October, has cancelled the trip. This was conveyed to Nepalese Foreign Secretary Shankar Bairagi by the Chinese ambassador to Nepal Wu Chuntai during a meeting two days ago.
The decision, incidentally, comes at a time when Nepalese Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal, also known as Prachanda, is preparing to visit India for a three-day trip starting September 15. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had last month extended an invitation to Prachanda to visit India at the earliest. According indianexpress, Sources told The Indian Express that the Chinese side expressed disappointment with Nepal over a host of issues.
