|Foreign Ministry Spokesman Qin Gang's Remarks on the Situation in Nepal|
Q: Recently, Nepal's Seven-Party Alliance (SPA) signed a 23-point agreement to end the political stalemate and hold Constituent Assembly (CA) elections by mid-April 2008. Do you have any comment?
A: China welcomes the progress of the peace process in Nepal. As a good neighbor and good friend of Nepal, we sincerely hope to see Nepal press ahead with the peace process so as to realize political stability and economic development. It conforms to the fundamental interest of Nepal and benefits regional peace and development.
The Chinese Government adheres to the principle of non-interference in other countries' internal affairs, respects the Nepalese people's choice for their own social system and way of development, and will continue to play a constructive role in promoting peace and stability of Nepal.
