KATHMANDU, June 15 (Xinhua) — Nepal Workers and Peasants Party (NWPP), an influential political party in Nepal, on Wednesday voiced its support for China’s position on the South China Sea issue.
During a talk program on “Disputes of South China Sea and the Islands” organized by the party in Bhaktapur, the party leaders said they stand together with China on its incessant efforts to maintain regional peace and stability.
“South China Sea has been unnecessarily dragged in dispute by Western countries, primarily the U.S., to maintain the hegemonic exploitation over Asian countries,” Narayanman Bijukchhe, the party chairman, said.
Bijukchhe called on countries in Asia to be on alert for conspiracies being hatched to arouse fight among the Asian countries.
Prem Suwal, head of the foreign relations department of the party, said Nepal should be concerned about the ongoing world politics and conspiracies hatched by some Western countries.
He said some countries that “are not even related with the South China Sea are encouraged to hold joint military drills and create disputes in order to weaken the prosperity of China.”
Surendra Raj Gosai, a member of the foreign relations department of the party, called for standing together for regional peace and justice.
“Asians need to be united to foil the conspiracies of external forces,” Gosai said.
He added, “Conflicts in Asia will lead to the suffering of Nepalese people as well, so it’s high time to warn the external forces.”
Nepal Workers and Peasants Party has 4 seats in the parliament and it supports coalition government led by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.
