Li, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress — China’s Parliament, called on Prime Minister Deuba, who is also the chief of the Nepali Congress, at the office of the Prime Minister today evening.

During the meeting, the two leaders discussed wide-ranging matters of mutual interest, including bilateral trade, investment, connectivity, return of Nepalese students to China, resumption of passenger flights, and reopening of border ports, among others, according to a press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
