China has demanded coordination between its and
Nepalese border security forces in order to
prevent the movement of Tibetans, according to
Telegraphnepal.com Aug 26. “We want hotline
contacts established between the Chinese Security
personnel and the Nepali Security machinations at
the Central as well as in the District levels,”
the report quoted Li Sao, the deputy chief of the
Civilian Security Department of Tibet, as saying
during a meeting in Lhasa which began Aug 15.

The report said Mr Li applauded the role Nepal’s
government  had played in curbing anti-China
Tibetan protests in the recent past but cautioned
that such activities were still on the rise in
Nepal. It said the Chinese side had expressed
deep concern over what was described as
exponential growth in anti-China activities in
Nepal with an alleged aim to create unrest in Tibet.

The Nepali delegation was led by Kishor Kumar
Lama-Additional Inspector General of the Armed
Police force. He was reported to have assured
China of his government’s continued adherence to
the “One China Policy”. As regards the demand for
hotline contact, he had promised to convey the
message to the higher authorities in Nepal.

The Nepali side was represented by
representatives of its Armed Police Force, the
General Police, Chief District Officers of the
bordering districts and some Home Ministry officials.
