China trying to influence Nepal's Army?


www.ndtv.com

Is China making efforts to gain influence in Nepal's Army by taking advantage of Maoists being in power?

Worries in this regard have been triggered following a flurry of visits by senior Chinese military officials to Kathmandu during the last few months.

Senior Chinese military officials and diplomats have been visiting Nepal through the Tibet-Nepal Highway frequently in the recent times, sources said here.

Senior officials of the Nepalese army have also visited Chinese military academies for training in the recent past, they said.

These developments are seen here as an attempt by China to gain influence in the Nepalese army, which has so far had very close links with India.

China appears keen to have to a Maoist installed as the chief of the army of its neighbouring country.

Nepal President Pushp Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda', formerly the leader of Maoists, has been wanting to install erstwhile Maoist commander Nanda Kishor Pun alias Passang as the Nepal Army chief.

China is to Asia what US is to the rest of the world. China has constantly invoved itself with controversy over border settlements and has frequently encroached foreign territories of the adjoining countries and has been involved with lot of cross border escalations in recent times. Trying to influence Nepal in any way would be highly consistent with the pattern of imposing chinese supremacy in the region and might not go down well with china's close rival India.
