KATHMANDU:  A demonstration has taken place against China at Maitighar Mandala in Kathmandu on Saturday.

Youths took part in the demonstration, holding placards reading ‘Back Off China,’ ‘Stop Foreign Intervention,’ ‘Stop Land Encroachment,’ and ‘Stop Chinese Expansionism.’

There have been protests in the Kathmandu Valley against China over its intervention in the internal politics of Nepal and encroachment of the Nepali territory.

Foreign affairs experts say China has been insistently trying to shape politics in its favor in Nepal, of late.

In Kathmandu, while Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Hou Yanqi remains busy in patching up differences among the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) leaders, Chinese Defense Minister and State Councilor Wei Fenghe makes a visit to Nepal later this month.

Meanwhile, Minister for Foreign Affairs of China Wang Yi, too, is visiting Nepal in the last week of November, Nepali officials have said.

Yi’s Nepal visit is viewed as significant at a time when there has been unprecedented intervention in Nepal’s internal politics by Chinese Ambassador Yanqi.
