Abstract

Nepal and China have a deep friendship for a long time. The marriage of 7th century Nepalese princess Burgtidevi and Tibetan emperor Songtsen Gampo (Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia), 13th century Nepalese craftsman Alanico's visit to China, and visits by Chinese monks and scholars from various times were paved. Road to the history of. A strong foundation for developing relations between Nepal and China Nepal and China formally established diplomatic relations in 1955. Today, Nepal and China maintain a friendly and heartfelt relationship that respects each other's sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence. The Chinese Embassy in Nepal (2007) stated that the relationship between Nepal and China was based on "trust, equality and integrity." I will add more. Both countries can never intimidate, harm or doubt each other. But always respect, trust and help each other. The Chinese government and its people are firmly committed to the principle that every country, large or small, is on par with others. Over the last 50 years, adhering to the five principles of peaceful coexistence, equal negotiations, communication and coordination, China and Nepal have achieved excellent cooperation and great achievements in bilateral political relations, regional affairs and international forums. .. Well, China considers Nepal to be its closest neighbor and best friend. We thank Nepal for its strong support over the years on Taiwan and Tibet, as well as other important issues related to China's sovereignty and interests. (Embassy of China in Nepal, 2015) Nepal has always shown a firm commitment to "One China Policy" and never allowed its soil to be used for hostile activities against China. China also upheld the proposal of the late King Birendra to declare Nepal a "zone of peace" and praised the development path followed by the Nepalese people without interfering with Nepal's internal affairs (Chinese Ambassador). Hall, 2007). China is a good partner in Nepal's development efforts. Thus, Nepal and China have a good relationship with each other.
