KATHMANDU — Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Co-chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachand has left for China on Saturday at the special invitation of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
Before leaving, Chairman Dahal told media at Tribhuvan International Airport that major agenda of the visit was to extend and strengthen the relations between CPN and Communist Party of China.
Another focus of his visit, as Dahal said, would be the initiative to implement various issues of agreement and cooperation reached between the two countries in the past.
During his stay, the CPN Chair and former Prime Minister would hold talks with high level leaders of China on mutual relations and also on bilateral relations.
In a different note, he said discussions were underway to unify the sister organizations of the former CPN (UML) and Maoist parties as per the party unity.
