Nepal: Use of “China Card”- Nepal Gets rewarded: Update No. 363

Note No. 799     Dated 23-Mar-2018
By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan.
In an earlier update (no. 360 dated 23rd feb.) we had referred to PM Oli’s statement on Indo-Nepal Relations.  We had said that what was more troubling was the open, brazen and arrogant declaration of Oli that he would be able to get more leverage from India by getting closer to China.  Though we criticised the statement, it looks that Oli was perhaps right in his assessment on relations with India.

The impending visit of Indian Foreign Minister to Nepal even before the new government is formed should be welcomed.  This visit was preceded by two calls from Indian Prime Minister inviting K.P.Oli to visit  India  and the response of Oli is very encouraging. In turn,  Oli invited the Indian PM to visit Mukthinath and Lumbini and significantly not Janakpur!

There has not been much by way of an official response from India to the communist takeover in Nepal.  It looks like a policy of “wait and see” and that  is good.
