KATHMANDU, Nepal and China agreed to conduct a joint inspection of Tatopani-Zhangmu border point, which was closed since the 2015 earthquake in Nepal, to see the possibility of reopening it, a senior official of Nepal's Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Supply (MoICS) has said.
During a trade meeting held in Kathmandu on Thursday and Friday, the two sides agreed to inspect the border point jointly, as they have recently reached agreement to reopen the border point as soon as possible, China's Xinhua News Agency reported.
"We will conduct joint inspection of the border point within two to three weeks," Rabi Shankar Sainju, joint secretary of MoICS, who led the Nepali team during the talk, told Xinhua on Friday evening.
After the closure of the Tatopani-Zhangmu border crossing, the Rasuwagadhi-Kerung route on the north of Kathmandu has become the main inland trade route between the two neighbours
