Beijing, April 4 – A top Nepalese defence official today assured Beijing that the Himalayan Kingdom will not allow any ‘anti-China activities’ from its soil by supporters of Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama.
“The Nepalese Government would, as always, support China’s stance on Tibet and never allow anyone to conduct activities aimed at jeopardising China’s national security within the territory of Nepal,” visiting Nepalese Defence Secretary Madan Prasad Aryal, said here during a meeting with Chinese Defence Minister Cao Gangchuan.
Cao, also Vice-Chairman of China’s Central Military Commission, and State Councillor, said China and Nepal’s history of friendly exchanges between the two peoples could be traced back to thousands of years.
Since the establishment of diplomatic relations more than 40 years ago, the two countries had established cooperation in the fields of politics, trade, economics, culture and education, and in a range of regional and international affairs, the newly- appointed Chinese Defence Minister said.
The two sides also exchanged views on the Iraq issue, Xinhua new agency reported.
