A Nepalese government report leaked to the BBC accuses China of encroaching into Nepal along the two countries shared border. It is the first time there have been official claims from Nepal of Chinese interference in its territory.
The report was commissioned last September following claims that China has been trespassing in the district of Humla, in the far west of Nepal. China’s embassy in Kathmandu denies there has been any encroachment. The Nepalese government has not yet responded to queries from the BBC.
It is unclear why the report has not yet been published. But the Nepalese government has over recent years improved ties with China to counterbalance its long-standing relationship with India, its giant neighbor to the south.
The report’s findings are likely to put pressure on these growing links with Beijing. The border between Nepal and China runs for nearly 1,400km (870 miles) along the Himalayan mountains. It was laid out in a series of treaties signed between the two countries in the early 1960s.
