BEIJING/KATHMANDU, March 20 - Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli today arrived in China on his first official visit to the country to clinch key deals including on transit and fuel import to avert a future blockade like the one the landlocked nation recently witnessed at the border with India.
Ahead of his talks with China�s top leadership, the 64-year-old premier described Nepal�s relationship with China as high as the Himalayas, which he said symbolise friendship.
He said the main purpose of his week-long visit, being undertaken at the invitation of his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang, is to get support and goodwill from Beijing.
Oli, leading a 50-member delegation, told Chinese state- run Xinhua news agency that transit and transport agreements with China are to be signed during his visit. � PTI
