Kathmandu, June 14
The Tatopani Customs Point at the Nepal-China border will resume its operation from May next year, says Nepal’s Foreign Affairs Minister.
Various discussions were held to open the Tatopani Customs Point next year in May, informed Minister for Foreign Affairs, Pradeep Gyawali, talking to mediapersons in the Capital today.
The northern neighbour will open the point once Nepal completes constructing the road from its side, he added.
The customs clearance of Tatopani will probably be done from Nyalam, situated at the Nepal-China border.
Nepal had initiated to open the border point that was shut after the Gorkha earthquake in 2015. Following that, traders have been using Rasuwagadhi customs point, which is farther from Kathmandu than Tatopani and involves difficult roadway.
