“Chinese spoke about the Wuhan informal summit between President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, where the two leaders discussed on achieving greater regional cooperation, which covered connectivity.”

 

In an informal summit between Nepal and China, the latter proposed a ‘two plus one’ form of dialogue that would include India as well.

As per the report of The Hindu, the Chinese proposed to the Nepalese Prime Minister, Mr. K.P. Oli a trilateral form of dialogues in order to reduce the growing trust deficit among the neighbouring countries.

“This is different from a trilateral mechanism. Under the Chinese proposal, China and India can jointly conduct a dialogue with a third regional country,” the Chinese sources said.

The Chinese initiative is not just confined with Nepal. The idea of this type of dialogue will be applied for the other South Asian country as well.

“My impression is that the two-plus one formulation is flexible and can be applied to any other country in South Asia,” the sources added.

 

‘China to fulfill it’s agenda with Nepal, with India’s interests’

During Mr. Oli’s visit, the Chinese made their stand clear to engage their relation with Nepal deeply, and develop special ties with its Himalayan neighbour. The hosts broke it’s protocol by initiating Mr. Oli’s meeting with President Xi Jinping, ahead of the customary delegation level talks with Prime Minister Li Keqiang. 

Moreover, the visit also made it clear that China was inclined to fulfill its ambitious agenda with Nepal gradually, after ensuring that such steps were in sync with India’s interests.

 

‘Keen to build bridges with India’

Many former diplomats and analysts believe that China is now keen to build bridges with India, knowing that their relations with the U.S under Trump’s administration is deteriorating day by day. Besides, bringing India on board is essential for enhanced regional connectivity, including a trans-Himalayan corridor through Nepal, seems another reason if President Xi’s Belt and Road Initiative is to achieve its full potential.
