Nepal not to allow anti-China activities: Prachanda

February 17, 2009

Kathmandu, Feb 15 (PTI) Nepal today assured China that it will not allow
pro-Dalai Lama activists to engage in anti-Beijing activities, as the
Communist giant mounted pressure on its southern neighbour to reign in
Tibetan elements.

Nepalese Prime Minister Prachanda renewed his government's commitment to
"One China" policy during a meeting with a visiting Chinese delegation,
which raised concerns over the wide scale protests witnessed last year
following a military crackdown in Tibet.

"Nepal is fully committed towards its one-China policy," Prachanda
reassured the visiting Chinese foreign delegation during a meeting this
morning, Prime Minister's Press Adviser Om Sharma said.

The delegation led by Liu Hongchai, deputy head of the Chinese Communist
Party's Foreign Relations Department, is here to attend the eighth
general convention of ruling coalition partner, CPN-UML, which will
start tomorrow.

Prachanda made the remarks after the visiting Chinese delegation
expressed concern over anti-China activities being launched in Nepal by
Tibetan refugees. The delegation also assured the Prime Minister that
China was eager to help Nepal in the peace process. PTI
