Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said the Nepal-China relations have assumed a new dynamism and dimension.

Addressing a press conference organised at the VIP lounge of Tribhuvan International Airport upon his arrival home on completion of a visit to the People's Republic of China today, PM Dahal said the high-level meetings and talks he held during the visit have further strengthened mutual trust and understanding.

He mentioned that he got an opportunity at the Boao Forum for Asia annual conference held in Hainan Province of China to clearly put forth the views and concerns of the least developed and landlocked small countries regarding globalization and free trade, as well as their expectations.

The foundation has been prepared from this visit for promoting more cooperation and collaboration on the topics of physical infrastructure, tourism and energy among others, he said.

On the occasion, he thanked Chinese President Xi Jinping, the Government and people of China and all officials concerned for the warm hospitality and cordiality that the Chinese side extended to his delegation during the visit.

China wants the participation of all political parties of Nepal in the upcoming election and the creation of political stability here, which are the concerns of the Chinese side, he added.

Stating that the election is certain, he said he is confident that Madhesh-centric parties will take part in it.

Prime Minister Dahal made it clear that the constitution amendment will be done immediately and the issues left to be sorted out will be finalised before the central election.
