By N24 Correspondent. KATHMANDU:- When China’s vice-minister for its Chinese Communist Party (CCP), Guo Yezhou, visited Nepal to make “peace” between two fighting sides of a political party (Nepal Communist Party – NCP), it was already crystal clear China had trespassed into the field of micro-managing Nepal’s internal affairs.
Yezhou landed in the Nepalese capital in a “guerrilla” style in a bid to keep the visit secret from public, but that was not possible in a democratic country like Nepal. That could be, though, possible in a totalitarian communist country like China.
In the name of “communist fraternity” and the “last ditch effort” to save the party unity of NCP, Yezhou separately visited Nepalese Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and NCP leaders Madhav Kumar Nepal, Pushpa Kamal Dahal “Prachanda”, Jhalanath Khanal and others.
Chinese ambassador Hou Yanqi’s “political activism” had already surpassed the limits in Nepal, but that was not enough for China to freak around in Nepal’s internal politics. As a consequence, China sent its latest envoy Yezhou to preach a political lesson to sovereign Nepal’s politicians.
The intention of “beautiful lady” Yanqi’s outing and meetings with Nepal’s politicians have already come under multiple questions and scrutiny. But the beautiful lady has not shied away from dropping into the personal living rooms and bedrooms of Nepal’s politicians.
As a consequence, China will now dictate Nepal’s political parties on when to split and how to unite and perform the “opera” show.
It’s a fact, Nepal’s communists are to be blamed for the unnecessary hobnob with Chinese communists in the name of “fraternity drama” and thus inviting Chinese intervention in Nepal’s politics.
Still, China deserves to be blamed for a large chunk of its role in encroaching Nepal’s nationalism and sovereignty, and violating its own foreign policy of non-interference in other countries’ domestic affairs.
China’s Mao Zedong and his successors are never tired of lecturing other countries that they believe in five principles of peaceful coexistence known as the “Pancha Sheel”. But China’s aggressive and interventionist foreign policy vis-a-vis Nepal does not match with Zedong and his successors’ principles.
In this context, China’s intervention in Nepal’s internal affairs and the attempt to micro-manage politics in Nepal is highly deplorable, condemnable and a severe setback for Nepal’s bilateral relations with China.
