BEIJING, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) — China will take the Belt and Road Initiative as an opportunity to strengthen connectivity, trade and investment with Nepal, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said on Thursday.
Li made the remarks when meeting with Nepalese Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Krishna Bahadur Mahara, who is on an official visit to China from Sept. 6 to 11.
“China will work with Nepal to speed up the feasibility study of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and the development of cross-border economic zones,” Li said.

“China hopes for unity among all factions in Nepal and smooth progress in their political agenda to usher in a new phase of lasting stability and prosperity for the country,” Li said.
Li said China is ready to maintain high-level exchanges with Nepal to ensure bilateral cooperation benefits the two countries’ development, their people as well as regional stability and prosperity.
