Bhaktapur, Aug 12 : Foreign Affairs Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali has said a base for trust has already been built with China and a draft prepared for a greater development partnership with it.

Taking part in an interaction organised by Rafat Media Club here today, he said good foreign relations were necessary to meet the ‘prosperous Nepal, happy Nepali’ campaign announced by the government.
As he said, works were going on to gather foreign assistance so as to find a ground for upgrading the country from the least developed status by the next three years and transform it into a middle-income country by 2030 AD.

He took the time to express that the government was committed to democracy. The Minister urged the main opposition to play constructive role instead of passing unnecessary comments on its government activities.  (RSS)
