（From Chinese Embassy in Nepal）
On 2 March, 2012, H.E. Ambassador Yang Houlan attended an interaction program with the leaders of Dolakha District in Lamabagar, which shares the border with China's Tibet. The district level political party leaders from UCPN(Maoist), NC, UML, etc., CA members, local government officers, Nepal-China Himalayan Friendship society and media persons were attending the interaction program
The Nepali side warmly welcomed Yang and his delegation visiting Lamabagar. They said Lamabagar used to be the friendly road link from Nepal to China's Tibet. The two sides have traditional close ties in trade and culture. The local government and political parties are clear about China's concerns. They stick to One China Policy, and never allow anyone to use Nepal's soil to conduct any anti-China activities. They expressed their great gratitude to the Chinese government for its sincere assistance to Nepal's social and economic development for many years. They said that Lamabagar was eager to have more infrastructure links with China, to deepen the traditional friendship and win-win cooperation between the two sides.
Yang expressed his gratitude to the local government, political parties and communities for their accommodation for China's concerns, as well as local people for their dedication to China-Nepal friendship. Yang said that China and Nepal are traditional friendly neighbors sharing a border as long as 1414km. The stability and development in border areas is crucial to both Chinese and Nepali sides. Although Lamabagar shares border with China's Tibet, the transportation is still not convenient owing to the Himalaya Mountain. He believed that the two sides would continue to join hands to push forward the construction of infrastructure links, to further expand and promote China-Nepal Comprehensive Partnership of Cooperation.
