Chinese Ambassador to Nepal has intensified political meetings with CPN leaders as internal dispute in the ruling party escalates.
Envoy Hou Yanqi has met senior leader of CPN Jhala Nath Khanal on Tuesday after meeting another senior leader and chief of the party's foreign department Madhav Kumar Nepal two days back.
She had reached Khanal's residence in Dallu to meet him. The duo talked for around 45 minutes starting at nine in the morning, according to a party source. The source added that they talked about bilateral issues during the meeting.
The Chinese envoy had also met Nepal and CPN Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal on May 1 when CPN was similarly mired in internal dispute. She had met Prime Minister (PM) and CPN Chairman KP Sharma Oli a few days before May 1. Many believed that her meetings played a role in dousing the fire in the ruling party then.
Internal dynamics in the ruling party is again very fluid in recent times with Dahal, Nepal and Khanal again allying to oust Oli from Baluwatar.
The meeting of Chinese envoy at the time of escalating internal dispute in the ruling party is considered meaningful and many are comparing it with how the Indian Embassy in Nepal earlier used to openly interfere in Nepali politics.
