  Kathmandu, Nepal      November 15 2022

Kathmandu, Nepal, November15, 2022: Visiting Chinese vice Minister for Culture and Tourism Li Qun is leaving for Hong Kong today, on Tuesday after completing his five-day ‘unofficial’ visit to Nepal. 

Li, who is also the head of the National Cultural Heritage Administration, had arrived in Kathmandu on Friday night. As his recent visit is termed as private one, no political meetings were held during his stay in Kathmandu. 

As Li is the first Chinese official to visit Nepal after Xi Jinping was reelected as president of China, his visit is taken manfully in the political as well as diplomatic sectors even though his visit is termed as personal. 

It is said that no political meetings were held not due to Li’s private visit but busy schedule of political leaders including Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba and Foreign Affair Minister Dr. Narayan Khadka.

During his stay in Kathmandu, he visited several touristic and heritage sites of Nepal including the Bhaktapur Durbar square, Basantapur Durbar square, Swayambhunath, Chhauni-based National Museum and Bauddhanath.

The Chinese government has funded to restore the nine-storey Basantapur Palace Complex at Basantapur Durbar Square, which was destroyed in the 2015 earthquake.
