Nepal, China to check movement of Tibetans
SHIRISH B. PRADHAN\PTI
Kathmandu, Nov 29: Nepal and China have agreed to step up security in their border areas in a bid to prevent the entry of Tibetans into this country to check frequent anti-Beijing protests here.
The meeting of senior district officials in Chautara, 125-km east of the capital near the Tibetan border, also agreed to ease movement of Nepalese nationals in the Tatopani area.
The two sides agreed tighten the entry of Tibetan nationals into Nepal and systematise the distribution of temporary entry cards as part of the 13-point agreement reached between the two sides, according to Hari Krishna Upadhaya, Chief District Administrative Officer.
Nepal is home to around 20,000 exiled Tibetans and the capital has been the scene of several anti-China protests in last few years.
Nepal supports ‘one-China policy’ that views Tibet as an integral part of China. It has repeatedly assured its giant northern neighbour that it will not allow its territory to be used against China.
Upadhaya led the Nepali delegation while Regional Chief of Nelam Region Hadd-Bin represented the Chinese side.
The Chinese delegation expressed their commitment to create favorable environment in future amid complains that local Nepalese were frequently facing hardship in movement along the border areas.
