Kathmandu, October 15
Minister for Foreign Affairs, Pradeep Kumar Gyawali, says Korala, a place in Upper Mustang of Nepal that borders Tibet of China, should be developed as an international border point.
The minister, accompanied by Industry and Commerce Minister Lekh Raj Bhatta and some bureaucrats, visited the place on Wednesday and stressed the need for its development.
“It will be developed as an international border point after the construction of an integrated check post and the upgrading of Kaligandaki corridor,” he said, “With this, Mustangi people’s old dream of prosperity will come true.”
Currently, only a few pilgrims going to the Manasarovar lake in Tibet use this point.
Although Nepal and China have been discussing trade and movement via this point, Nepal has not constructed any infrastructure required for that there.
