The spokesperson of China’s Foreign Ministry said that it is ready to provide fuel and vital supply to needy Nepal.

“The Chinese side is ready to provide vital help at the request of the Nepali government as an inviting neighbor to diminish the lack of fuel supply,” Hua Chunying said at a regular press conference in Beijing yesterday.

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.

The Nepali delegation has begun dialogs with the concerned Chinese authorities on the alternatives and solutions to the present fuel crisis. The team has been mandated to discuss the means and mode of fuel import, including prices, with the Chinese side.

Nepal is right now reeling under intense lack of petroleum products attributable to the Madhes-based parties, which have increased their disturbance in the wake of the promulgation of the new constitution on September 20.
