Peeved with India, Nepal set to offer railway, airport, oil and gas projects to China
BEIJING: China is in talks with the visiting Nepali prime minister KP Sharma Oil to establish a rail network connecting different cities in the Himalayan kingdom, sources said. This is besides the plan to extent the Tibetan railway to the Nepali border.
The two countries signed 10 different agreements, and began negotiations on greater transport connectivity. The moves, which come after the recent blockade on the India-Nepal border, have great implications for India, observers said.
Indian infrastructure companies are bound to lose out in competition for Nepali projects because of inapt political and diplomatic handling of the blockade situation, sources said.
Chinese railway companies are eager to bag the contract for inland rail network, and would be ready to help the Nepal government to obtain funding, sources said.
FIRST WE SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON OUR PROBLEMS, AFTER SOLVING ALL THOSE, WE SHOULD LOOK OUSIDE.

Oli must know that there is a limit to play his thrice damned China card on India!
Smart and sensible foreign policy by Nepal.
Is Nepal is still considered a “kingdom”? This article is misleading. How could we rely on other things it says…? hahaha
Modi govt has destroyed our strong relationship with our neighbour Nepal
indias dismayal foreign policy
we dont mind nepal choose china and play with dog
This bad foreign policy as far as India is concerned. They should have handled the situation in a better way since you know we have a backyard stonge enemy always willing to exploite our weakness. Not Good.
Its ok, dont have acidity. Nepal n india will learn to believe in each other. While india interfere in some matter, nepali politician blames everything to india for anything bad happens there to keep themselves clean. And indian journalist are worst just see their nepal earthquake coverage , when u are helping someone in time of need u shouldn’t shout about this rather b more humble. China will be a great boon for nepal n how its happen lets see, india only need to see china doesnt use nepal just like pakistan to harm india.
