China pledges military assistance worth Rs100 million to Nepal
Phayul[Friday, November 27, 2009 17:54]

Dharamsala, November 27: China has pledged a slew of financial assistance to Nepal, including military aid worth Rs100 million for the supply of "non-lethal" security equipments and training the Nepalese Army, PTI reported.

The report speculated that the move may raise concerns in India.

The military assistance will include non-lethal security equipments, logistics support, training for Army officials and communications equipment, the report cited The Kathmandu Post as reporting.

China has also agreed to increase its annual assistance by Rs1600 million, which was limited to Rs1100 million until last year, according to the report.

The announcement was made during bilateral talks held by visiting deputy executive vice-chair of Tibet Autonomous Region, Hao Peng with top Nepalese authorities on Wednesday.

The 10-member Chinese delegation led by Peng arrived in Kathmandu on Tuesday supposedly on a five-day goodwill visit.

Since massive unrest in Tibet last year, China has been sending a flurry of high-level official delegations to force Nepal to ensure it effectively curbs "Free-Tibet activities” on its soil. In return China promises to increase assistance to the crisis-ridden country.

Tibetans exiles in Nepal last year staged some of the most dramatic and sustained demonstrations in Kathmandu, targeting the Chinese embassy, its visa office and the United Nations after unrest against Chinese rule in Tibet faced brutal Chinese military crackdown.

According to statistics, Nepal is home to over 20,000 Tibetans refugees concentrated mainly in the Kathmandu valley and Pokhara in western Nepal.

Past estimates also suggest between 2,500 and 3,000 Tibetans escape Tibet and enter Nepal each year after a perilous journey over the Himalayas on their way to Dharamsala, the seat of Tibetan Government-in-Exile in north India. The number has slowed down dramatically since last year after Nepal beefed up security along its border with Tibet following Chinese pressure.

Recently Nepal even announced its decision to tighten Tibet border by deploying armed police along its northern Mustang-Tibet border, raising criticism that the move was prompted by pressure from China against the Tibetans.
