Nepal Inks Transit Treaty With China, To Have First Rail Link


China agreed to a request of Nepal Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli to build a strategic railway link between the two countries through Tibet to reduce his land-locked country’s total dependence on India. The day also saw the two sides cementing their ties by signing 10 agreements, including a landmark transit trade deal.


Mr. Oli, on his maiden seven-day visit to China, was given a red carpet welcome by Premier Li Keqiang at the Great Hall of the People. He also called on Chinese President Xi Jinping.
The two countries sealed 10 agreements including the much-publicised transit trade treaty which will end Nepal’s total dependency on Indian sea ports for third-country trade.The other agreements included a feasibility study on the establishment of a Free Trade Agreement, China’s assistance to build a new airport and a border bridge. The other agreements included a treaty on economic and technical cooperation to build a Regional International Airport Project at Pokhara, Nepal’s famous tourist site.

Extra info:
  • Mr. Oli’s high-profile visit comes as Nepal seeks to open more supply routes from China amid fears of a repeat of recent nearly six-month-long crippling blockade when the Indian-origin Madhesis blocked Nepal’s trade routes with India, throwing normal life out of gear.
  • During the talks, the two Prime Ministers made a comprehensive review of bilateral relations and expressed satisfaction over the steadily growing relations between the two countries.


So lets do:
  • Who is the  President of China?
  • Nepal Signed transit treaty pact to which country?
