China has asked Nepal to oppose Taiwan’s independence as the issue has got the limelight in global politics recently with the hyped visit of United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the China-controlled country.

One day after Pelosi landed in Taiwan, the Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Hou Yanqi issued a statement expecting Nepal’s support.

“China highly appreciates Nepal’s longstanding commitment to the one-China principle and resolutely opposing Taiwan’s Independence,” the statement reads, “It is also the political foundation of China-Nepal relations. We believe that the government of Nepal and its people will continue to abide by the one-China principle and understand and support China’s legitimate and justified position and work together with China to defend each other’s sovereignty, security and territorial integrity
