India, China Befriending to Develop Their Economies: Pushpa Kamal Dahal



Are India-China befriending each other only for economic benefits? Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has shared some important conversation with the former Prime Minister of Nepal, Pushpa Kamal Dahal about reviving the Asian economy, especially India and China.

Upon his arrival from a four-day visit to India on Sunday, the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Chairman Dahal said the two neighbouring countries of Nepal are inching closer for cooperation to boost their economies.

“PM Modi shared with me the strategic issues he had discussed with Xi and said that India and China hold 51 per cent shares in the world economy but it continuously declined in the past 400 years. He said that they (Modi and Xi) discussed reviving the Asian economy and civilization through cooperation between the two countries,” said Dahal.

Dahal will probably also meet top Chinese leaders during his visit to China starting from September 15, a week after his meeting with top Indian leaders. His meeting was held with Indian PM Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Modi’s chief security advisor Ajit Doval among others during the visit.

The former Nepal PM also stated that his visit helped to establish the bilateral relations and implementation of earlier agreements between the two countries. He was of the view that a positive progress has been achieved in relations with India after the neighbour took actions to fix the inundation problems in bordering areas, closing the Biratnagar field office of the Indian embassy and assisting road construction project in western Nepal as per its commitments.

“I said that Nepal has a strong government after a long time and we want development and prosperity in the country. In response, no one missed saying that they wanted a peaceful and prosperous Nepal. I found this as a positive message for us,” claimed Dahal.

He claimed that the focus of his all political meetings was mutual cooperation for the growth of Nepal. “I clearly put forth all issues including the implementation of past agreements and commitments. I believe that the visit has created a good environment for enhancing mutual cooperation,” Dahal said.

Asked about Oli’s reputation on his claim over cabinet reshuffle soon, Dahal said that Oli’s statement will be last on the matter. “What the prime minister says is the authentic information on this issue. I had just said that if a minister makes a mistake he should not remain in the post any longer. With the statement of the Prime Minister, I believe that the ministers have started doing their duties actively,” he said.

Dahal said, in another context, that he is for additional funds to hike the social security allowances for the elderly with the fiscal year budget not addressing the issue which was promised by the NCP during the elections.
