Nepal wants to keep good relations with India as well as China : Prachanda

” As a close neighbour, we are delighted to see India’s rapid march on the path of development and its rising global stature.Beyond the respective border, our two countries do share a dream of regional prosperity and better regional cooperation.We believe that the SAARC and the BIMSTEC (Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation) do not substitute but complement each other.We can easily say that the difficult times could have been avoided had we seen things in more enlightened perspective and judged things better.Nonetheless, good thing is that even in difficult times, we remained engaged and remained sincerely effortful to free ourselves from those intermittent irritants. We did not let such irritants undermine the strong foundation of our relations. We need to look forward, not backward.”

Former Nepalese Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal “Prachanda” said while delivering speech at the Sapru House.
