KATHMANDU, July 12 (Xinhua) -- Nepal's Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai warmly congratulates Confucius Institute at Kathmandu University (CIKU) for its 5th anniversary, saying that "the institute has been tremendously contributing in promoting cultural relations between our two ancient civilizations."
