Nepalese civic body submits memorandum to UN over alleged Chinese encroachment

Kathmandu, Nepal: The Rastriya Ekata Abhiyan, a Nepalese civic society, has handed over a memorandum to the United Nations Office where they said China has encroached on Nepal’s land.

Ekta Abhiyan chairperson Binay Yadav reached the UN office in Kathmandu on Monday and handed over the memorandum to UN Resident Coordinator Richard Howard through Office Information Officer Rajendra Man Banepali, Khabarhub reported.

The group even asked the international community to heed the Chinese encroachment of the land of the neighboring countries and make due intervention in the issue.

Recalling that the government had formed a panel to study the border dispute between Nepal and China in Humla on September 1, 2021, the Abhiyan also urged the Nepali Congress-led government to take action as suggested by the committee formed under its initiation.

“According to the study, the area between pillar number 5 (2)and the middle of the Kit Khola has been marked as the border between the two countries since the 1963 Boundary Protocol,” the Rastriya Ekta Abhiyan’s appeal was quoted as saying by Khabarhub, “However, it has been discovered  that the Chinese side has erected fences and wires in Nepali land.”

A Nepalese government report has claimed that China is 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, reports BBC.

The report was commissioned last September following claims that China has been trespassing in the district of Humla, in the far west of Nepal, BBC reported.

However, the Chinese Embassy in the Himalayan nation rejected claims that there was any encroachment in the territory.

The Nepalese government has not yet responded to queries from the BBC.
