The Chinese government will provide Nepal with six airplanes in the next five months, according to a recent agreement between China and the South Asian neighbor.

According to the agreement signed on Nov 28 in Kathmandu, capital of Nepal, China will present two Modern Ark 60 and four Yun-12 E, both China-made with 58 and 19 seats respectively.

The Nepal Airlines, the only State-owned airline in the country, will receive the Modern Ark 60 within two and a half months and the rest four will be delivered in five months, said the agreement.
