Her announcement has come during a time when an official team from Nepal has traveled to Beijing to hold talks in regards to prospects of importing fuel from the northern neighbor.
An official team led by Ambassador of Nepal to China, Mahesh Maskey has already reached Beijing to hold dialog concerning the import of petroleum items from China.
Reacting to a query, she further said that the Chinese and Nepali sides are in close correspondence in such issues.
