Kathmandu, January 8
Chen Song, the newly appointed Chinese ambassador to Nepal, has arrived in Kathmandu.
He landed at the Tribhuvan International Airport on Sunday morning.
Chen, the 22nd Chinese ambassador to Nepal, will succeed Hou Yanqi, who was called back by the Beijing government a few months ago.
Speaking with journalists at the airport, the new ambassador said he would focus on closer ties between the two countries and communities for a shared future.
“I am deeply aware of the glorious mission and great responsibility. I will follow the important consensus reached by President Xi Jinping and Nepali leaders, stay devoted and dedicated to outlining their freehand brushwork of bilateral relations into a meticulous painting.”
