China proposes India-Nepal-China economic corridor through Himalayas

China’s proposal came after visiting Nepalese Foreign Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali held talks with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi. Wang said China and Nepal have already signed a MoU on China’s multi-billion-dollar Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in which connectivity cooperation is a part. It included a long-term vision such as connectivity network and covering the links between the two countries though ports, railways, highways, aviation, power and communications.
