Kathmandu, Nepal, June 25, 2020: The government of Nepal has on Thursday rejected the media reports that northern neighbor China has also encroached upon the Nepali territory. 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has rejected the media report referring to the report of the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development. 

The report of the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development doesn’t exist and that the subject matter doesn’t fall under its jurisdiction, states the press release issued by the MoFA. 

Nepal government’s outright rejection of the media report regarding the alleged encroachment of Nepali territory by the northern neighbor China is taken importantly as it has come at the time when some media have not only reported over the issue but the southern neighbor India has repeatedly been alleging Nepal for acting in favor of China. 

Following the border disputes between Nepal and India over the Kalapani area, media reports are widespread that several areas in Gorkha and Sankhuwasabha districts are encroached by China.
