According to the Foreign Minister's Secretariat, during the meeting held on Monday afternoon at the State Guest House in Beijing, bilateral interests as well as various aspects of economic and social development were discussed between them.

Foreign Minister Shrestha reminded that China and Nepal have been good friends for centuries and said that Nepal is committed to the One China principle.

Appreciating China's support for Nepal's development, he hoped that Chinese support would increase in the future.

CPPCC Chairman Huning said that China and Nepal are not only countries connected by the Himalayas and rivers, but also as members of the same family.

He said that the high-level visits from both countries have strengthened the relationship between the two countries. Making it clear that China will not interfere in Nepal's internal affairs, CPPCC Chairman Hunin said that China will strongly support the decision taken by Nepal for the prosperity of its country.

He said that both China and Nepal should move together in the direction of economic prosperity.
