Sensing in advance the likelihood of anti-China
protests backed by forces stationed in the
vicinity, could flare-up once again, the
Government of Nepal is deploying Armed Police
Personnel patrolling Nepal’s border with Tibet in the north.

"More than 12 thousand Armed Police men would be
patrolling the border with China in 18 adjoining districts," reports disclose.

"The Chinese side has assured that it will
provide the entire physical support needed to the
Nepali security personnel, who will be on duty to
curb anti-china activities, minimize illegal
trade and stop miscreants from sneaking into China," reports add.

Reports however, do not disclose if China was
ready to provide arms and ammunitions to the security personnel or not?

It was suspected last year that the March 2008
pro-Tibet protest in Lhasa was fuelled by foreign forces based in Nepal.

A bilateral meeting between China and Nepal
scheduled soon would finalize the details of the
APF (Armed Police Force) deployment.

"A week long meeting is scheduled beginning
August 15, 2009 in Lahsa that is expected to
address issues of border management and APF deployment," reports add.

The Nepali team comprising of High Ranking Police
and APF officers and Chief District officers of
Mustang, Solukhumbu, Rasuwa, Humla,
Sankhuwasabha, Dolakha, Taplejung and
Sindhupalchwok are flying to Lahsa, Friday August 14, 2009.
