The Prime Minister made this remark during a meeting with senior Nepalese journalists and a delegation of Chinese journalists in Nepali capital Kathmandu on Thursday evening.

"China has made tremendous progress in the past ten years. Therefore, we want to be partners with China in its progress and support each other," said the Prime Minister.

The role of media sector is very vital in developing ties between the two countries, the PM said.

"The media sector plays the most important role in developing ties between people to people of the two countries."

He said that Lumbini, which is the birth place of Lord Gautam Buddha, can play an important role in the exchange of friendly ties between the two countries.
