KASKI: Representatives of Gandaki State and the members of a visiting Chinese delegation held a discussion on opening the Korala entry point in Pokhara, Sunday.
The Chinese team led by Professor Wai Dyung Liu was keen to know about the potentiality of Korala border point and the State Government’s perspective on it.
The Chinese representatives were also interested to know about the possible increment in the economic and religious activities across the border after the opening of the frontier.
In response, Ram Sharan Basnet, Minister for Physical Infrastructure and Development of Gandaki State, said that the State Government had already sent a proposal to the Federal Government asking the latter to open the Korala entry point.
The State government is looking forward to the opening of the frontier, added Minister Basnet.
Also, since both, Kathmandu and Lumbini are nearer to Korala entry point, both the countries can be benefitted through the exchange of economic and religious happenings between the two countries, said Minister Basnet.
Minister Basnet further informed that a road track has already been constructed in the linking Korala frontier.
Professor Liu said that China was also willing to open the Korala entry point and if both the countries agreed to open the border point, China would immediately carry out a detailed research on it
Dr. Giridhari Sharma Poudel, vice-chair of the Provincial Planning and Policy Commission, said, “Since Korala frontier will be the shortest distance to connect to the frontier of Nepal-India border, it will also help increase tri-national commercial activities.
The State Government has requested the government to open the Korala frontier in Mustang district, as it would be of a great help in accelerating commercial activities between Nepal and China.
