Kathmandu, August 5
Nepal says it is looking at the recent Taiwan issue closely, adding it is committed to the one-China policy.
In a press conference in Kathmandu on Friday, the spokesperson at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Sewa Lamsal, said, “Nepal is in favour of international peace.”
The government’s comment comes two days after the Chinese Ambassador to Nepal, Hou Yanqi, expected Nepal’s support in its rising tension with the United States over the Taiwan issue.
During the press conference, Lamsal, however, did not speak any word against the US.
Meanwhile, the official said Nepal and China could sign some agreements with China during Foreign Affairs Minister Narayan Khadka’s visit to Beijing next week.
“But, I cannot make the details public now. We will hold a press conference for this again,” she said, “Please have patience.”
