Kathmandu, October 21

The Tatopani border point between Nepal and China that is closed for the past two weeks will reopen after the Dashain festival only, inform officials.

During a bilateral meeting between local officials of Nepal and Tibet, the Chinese side has agreed to reopen the border. However, it will take some time to make necessary preparations, informs the Tatopani Customs Office.

The office chief Lal Bahadur Khatri says another meeting will be held on Thursday to finalise a date to reopen the border point.

After the closure of around three weeks, the border point had reopened on October 5, to get shut the second day due to the coronavirus infection in seven Nepali workers going to China to load consignments.

After Dashain, the Chinese side will deliver the goods onto the Nepali side on its own, informs Karki.

Another major border point between the two points, Rasuwagadhi, is open and smooth trade activities are underway, according to Rasuwagadhi Customs Office Chief Punya Bikram Khadka.
