China sends oil to Nepal, India loses sole provider status
India on Wednesday lost its age-old status of Nepal’s sole fuel provider with the land-locked nation signing an agreement with China on supply of petroleum products to alleviate shortages caused by the blockade of land routes from India due to unrest over the new constitution.
Under the agreement, the bureaucrat added, China will supply fuel at international rates, which Kathmandu might find cheaper than its imports from India. To begin with, China will fulfill at least a third of Nepal’s requirements.
when nations want to dig their own graves it is their fate – no one can help You join hands with a rouge nation they will swallow you sooner or later which can be a threat in the region
You must know that India wanted Nepal to be its puppet. We are sovereign nation, India must respect our decision,
India has no any right to interfere in our internal issue. It can give us advise but not force us.
Signing a deal is the easy part…. now comes the execution part….we have to see how many years this will last… INDIA it self does not have sufficient petrol for internal consumption…. this is good for INDIA too….. We can try selling to Nepal when INDIA becomes a surplus petrol country…
No offense, even India is swallowing us.I have been to border and it just broke me down. If I were in power, I would like to have a closed border. The indian force bosses like they own the place.
China has agreed to strengthen its position in Nepal but India will not allow them to do so. In the run, it would be Nepalis who will feel squeezed between to Powers due to short sight of their leaders.
feku foreign policy is an utter failure !!
Really so you think that the Chinese will give respect and freedom to the Nepalese well then you are sadly mistaken my friend….time will tell.
GIve an option to Nepal then… How well did India treated till date… Being a landlock nation Nepal has limited alternatives and Nepal just choosed alternative. Nepal did not canceled any treaty from India they just search an alternative. Its not good to make one nation totally dependent on a sole source. Its easy for you to hate china but difficult to help Nepal in crisis. People in hospital are dying because of lack of medicines just because their neighbour country was not happy with their constitution or because their neighbouring country blocked all the necessities because of few thousands are unsatisfied with the constitution. Open up guys… no bad about Modi but bad about India’s selfish policy. This is the last resort before dying.
India is helping nepal since …you beloved neighbor CHINA was not rich to feed u…..there was no china to help u that time..u always lived like u wr never different from india. Now u want to make constitution against the ppl of nepal who loves india? greedy pro china nepali……cant see the long term impact of evil china’s interest in nepal. nowadays only Tib**tan ppl take refuge in india…..after a decade …india ll be filled with nepali refugees.
absolutely. This is going to be true in long term, which Nepalese not realized yet
All our neighboring countries except bhutan use china card to exctract undue advantage from us. Good step by Indian govt. Now slowly stop border crossing difficult fro non-madhesi people and let them go to china lets see how many of them learn manderin. Also border crossing should be looked for illegal import of china goods in India. China has hidden goal of pushing illegal goods to India through Nepal.
Scrap Indo-Nepal Friendship Treaty first.
