Accusing the two previous governments of not working on the trade and transit understanding reached with China, Oli said his government has started homework for signing the agreement.
“An agreement was made with China in 2016 during my first visit to the northern neighbor as prime minister. As the two previous governments did nothing to move forward the process, the draft of the protocol was gathering dust at the ministry and it took us a while to resume the process,” claimed Oli.
Prime Minister KP Oli has said Nepal and China will ink a trade and transit protocol in July this year.
Claiming that his China visit was fruitful and the agreements with China were not against any other country, Oli told the lower house that Nepal will neither play one neighbor against another nor will it tilt to any side.
He informed that Nepal inked 22 agreements with China.
