Nepali President Ram Baran Yadav expressed his good-will to Yunnan province and China, hoping to deepen cooperation with the neighbor, during a recent meeting with media delegation from Yunnan.

On Nov 27, Ram Baran Yadav met with the media delegation headed by Li Qian, director of the provincial information office of Yunnan. "For a long time, China has helped my country in infrastructure improvement, cultural establishment and education. My people are grateful to the assistance," he said.

The president said the media exchanges have played a vital role in the public diplomacy between the two countries and Nepali media should be encouraged to practically work with the Chinese media in the future, he said.

Li said Yunnan is the most convenient frontier to open up to Nepal as it shares similarities in ethnic cultures and beautiful landscapes with the country on the south mountainside of Himalaya. "he friendship with Nepal has been long-lasting, especially after the China-South Asia Expo in June that provided a new platform for win-win cooperation," she said.

During the visit, Li signed an agreement with Nepali counterparts in strategic media cooperation to accelerate well-rounded exchanges.
