Tibetan Review
February 11, 2010

Nepal and China have vowed to enhance their cooperation in dealing
with the Tibet issue, especially in terms of strengthening security
along their Tibet border and dealing with the so-called anti-China
activities on Nepal's territory. China is willing to further
strengthen communication, coordination and cooperation on the Tibet
issue with Nepal, China's official Xinhua news agency Feb 9 cited
Zhou Yongkang, secretary of the Political and Legislative Affairs
Committee of the CPC Central Committee, as saying.

Zhou, a standing Committee member of the Politburo, made the comment
in a meeting in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing Feb 8 with
visiting Nepali Minister for Home Affairs Bhim Bahadur Rawal. The
report cited Rawal as saying, on his part, that Nepal would like to
boost law-enforcement cooperation with China and jointly crack down
on crimes on their border areas.

The report said Rawal later met with China's Public Security Minister
Meng Jianzhu who spoke of his readiness to work with Nepal "to
implement the consensus reached by their state leaders to enhance
bilateral exchanges and cooperation."

Rawal visited Lhasa and Beijing from Feb 6 to 12 at the invitation of
Meng, the report said.
