China's Defense Minister General Wei Feng arrived on a one-day Nepal visit with a 21-member delegation on Sunday. The visit comes soon after the visit of India's Foreign Secretary Harshvardhan Shringla.


The visit is very important amid the continuing discord in the Communist Party of Nepal. In fact, China is now directly interfering in the neighboring country of Nepal as well as in education and other fields.


China's Defense Minister General Wei Feng called for Nepal to provide more Nepali students with an education in China while ensuring the supply of military equipment to Nepal.


The visit is considered to be very important after the two-day visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping in October last year. Home Minister Rama Bahadur Thapa welcomed him at the national airport inside Tribhuvan, after which V Fang told reporters that he had come to implement the agreement between the two countries and to discuss bilateral military cooperation.

He also spoke of resuming the supply of non-lethal military equipment to Nepal. This is seen as another step taken by Nepal to increase its dependence on India on China. Due to Kovid 19, the supply of equipment and goods to Nepal was stopped by China.

China trying to settle in Nepal's young minds

In the year 2020, about 65 thousand youth and children of Nepal are taking education in India. At the same time, according to Ambassador Hou Panki of Nepal to China, 6400 Nepali students were studying in China in 2019, three thousand of them are giving scholarships to China. The goal of China is to develop a clean corner of future educated citizens of Nepal towards China, whose benefits continue for that long.
