China Cannot Take India’s Place As A Special Neighbour: Nepali Congress

26

As the ruling Nepali Congress completed a month of its governance on Friday, the party said that China cannot take India’s place as a “special” neighbour, and asserted its decision to solve the Limpiyadhura-Kalapani-Lipulekh region issue through diplomatic means.
A few days ago the Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba-led party, along with its five coalition partners, rolled out a common minimum programme (CMP), underlining the need to resolve issues relating to India’s Limpiyadhura-Kalapani-Lipulekh region through diplomatic means, according to the Himalayan Times. 
The region was included in the national map of Nepal following its endorsement by the federal Parliament last year.
The CMP underlined the need for Nepal to adopt a ‘Neighbours First’ policy while striking cordial relations with the other nations as well.
“Nepal, under this government, will be interested in maintaining good relations with all its neighbours.
 Nepal needs Beijing, and China has been a good neighbour to us, but India will remain special, China cannot replace India,” Udaya Shumsher Rana, former minister of state for finance and a member of the Nepali Congress, told India Narrative.
Nepal Prime Minister Deuba will have to delicately resolve issues as he leads a rather fragile coalition government.
 While Deuba will have to take the other coalition partners along, he will also have to keep his own citizens happy while maintaining steady relations with India as well as China.
