Nepalese Chinese language – Illinois Information At this time
Kathmandu [Nepal]May 28 (ANI): Nepal’s relationship with China is a natural result of engagement between two neighboring countries with longstanding relationships on different levels.
Nepal and Tibet have built a traditional relationship for many years, and trade and political exchanges since ancient times. Compared to the low level of engagement of the two countries in the past few decades, however, there has been a major change between 2014 and 2015, that China’s activities in Nepal have become more active in various areas, including politics. At this stage, investment also accelerates in terms of human resources and capital, which is a significant change from the traditional, non-disruptive role that China has played in the past.
China’s increased involvement has also brought to the fore the bullish, dominant and aggressive approach that China and its people have taken against Nepal, Nepalese and Nepalese institutions. Many Nepalis fear China’s attitude because of issues such as border invasion, violation of fair trade practices, fraud and fraud cases, and the relentless attitude of Chinese businessmen, workers and senior officials. It turned out like that.
In recent years we have seen many revelations of China’s aggression along the China-Nepal border. Traditionally, Kathmandu has had limited ability to monitor its northern borders, which are characterized by dangerous terrain and a sparse population. In many places, old border pillars have been worn out or misaligned due to extreme weather conditions, but the Kathmandu government is less concerned. This situation is used in various places for the benefit of China.
In the Taplejung region, a 2015 study by the Nepalese Ministry of Agriculture (announced in 2019) found that large-scale construction on the Chinese side shifted around 36 hectares of land to four different areas along the border. Chinese side. China has diverted river flows in areas that have been diverted to the Nepalese side, which now includes several acres of land along Humla, Raswa and neighboring areas of Nepal. The Nepalese government believes there could be similar invasions in Solkmbu, Dolakha, Gorkha, Manang, Mustang, Dolpa, Mugu and Darchula along the border between China and Nepal.
More recently, in May 2019, news of a Chinese invasion of Humura district came to the fore, according to which Chinese had erected at least 11 concrete structures over an area of 2 kilometers of Nepalese territory. There was a report that showed. Prominent locals like Nepalese Congressman Jiban Shahi, whose families have lived in the area for generations, guarantee the Chinese invasion with sufficient evidence. Lapcha village in the area. Locals have confirmed in the past that their shepherds exceed current Chinese structures, but the Chinese do not currently allow grazing in the area.
Another area where the conflict was highlighted in 2019 is the village of Louis in the Gorka district of China, depending on the current location of the border pillars. For some time the Chinese repositioned the border pillars so that the village now fits in China. The villagers are exclusively in China but continue to pay the Nepalese government. All of these cases sparked a series of anti-China protests in Kathmandu, sparked strong anti-Chinese rhetoric on social media, and warned the Nepalese government to take these cases seriously.
I’ve also come across some examples of Chinese cheating and bullish attitudes in the business world. Large Chinese companies operating in Nepal often engage in malicious and outrageous business practices, such as: B. access to prior information on important offers to overwhelm other competitors. This tactic has enabled many Chinese companies to win various projects in Nepal. Chinese business people have manipulated bureaucrats and interest groups in key institutions to gain access to information for their benefit.
Chinese people living in Nepal have also become aware that they are drowning crimes in various forms of crime. In December 2019, Nepalese authorities arrested 122 Chinese people who were illegally in Nepal and involved in financial fraud and fraudulent e-commerce. The fact that officials from the Chinese Ministry of Public Security (MPS) conducted the investigation by influencing the Nepalese authorities while the Nepalese authorities were persecuting them shows the extent to which the Chinese are influencing Nepal. To prevent the news from going viral, the Chinese authorities sent the defendant back on a special plane under the Mutual Aid Treaty.
In addition to gold, the Chinese are known for smuggling rare items, including antiques from Nepal, on a large scale. According to Nepalese police records, more than 200 Chinese people have been arrested in recent years for engaging in a variety of crimes, including money laundering, human trafficking, wildlife smuggling and illegal medical practice.
In September 2019, the Nepalese authorities arrested five Chinese people for participating in a large-scale counterfeiting of ATM cards and a hacking scandal. These criminals coordinated the withdrawal of millions of rupees (34.5 million according to the Nepalese Rupee Bank) from numerous banks in Nepal, causing a massive disruption to normal financial transactions. The Chinese authorities have tried to openly cover up the news, especially since the Chinese Foreign Minister visited Nepal on September 8-10.
According to the US-based Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the Chinese telecommunications company ZTE is using Nepal to evade US sanctions against Iran. The company previously purchased telecommunications equipment from the US and illegally sold them to Iran as ZTE devices in an attempt to circumvent US sanctions. During the 2015 Nepal earthquake, the company escaped customs by importing equipment for installing communication towers and installing Red Cross branded equipment. ZTE ended up paying a fine of Rs. 10.1 million to release the product.
Another problem that Nepal felt misled over the years was the exclusive use of Chinese payment platforms like WePay and AliPay by Chinese tourists visiting Nepal. Chinese trading companies and corporations have established a wide range of China-related facilities in Nepal, including shops, guest houses, and restaurants that are used by approximately 150,000 Chinese tourists visiting Nepal. Tourism experts in Nepal have found that Nepal does not benefit from these tourists as most of the spending made through these payment platforms has returned to China. In May 2019, Nepal Rastra Bank banned two services in China that operate without a license.
Chinese businessmen who settled in the central tourist district of Thamel in Kathmandu, particularly Kathmandu, have also been criticized for running a mafia-style network, squeezing gold and harassing local Nepalese businessmen. Thamel-based Chinese businessman Wang Yun Penn is a leading Chinese mafia leader involved in manipulating transactions and twisting the arms of Nepalese businessmen as part of China’s expansion plans. is.
With Nepal being a member of the Asia and Pacific Anti-Money Laundering and Terrorism Group (CTF), China’s illegal activity, particularly those related to financial fraud, has raised concerns in Nepal. Nepal was placed on the FATF’s “gray list” in 2008, but was removed from the “gray list” in 2014 and hardly deleted. The Nepalese authorities have made every effort to reorganize the financial sector with transparent norms as Chinese criminal organizations are involved in money laundering, cyber crime, online gambling, ATM fraud and much more. I am concerned that it could become invalid.
When it comes to human relationships, the Chinese have been impervious to Nepalese feelings. In March 2020, a group of Chinese workers working on a project in the Lamjung area attacked a Nepalese villager with raw weapons. Similarly, in May 2020, a group of Chinese tourists detained for missing flights from Kathmandu in Nepal was visited by Nepalese police officers in central Kathmandu amid Covid. He made an attack that broke his uniform while preventing customers from protesting. ..
At the diplomatic level, Chinese Ambassador Hou Yankee also remains controversial for his significant intervention in local politics, which is sometimes rude and non-diplomatic.
In February 2020, the Chinese ambassador accused the publisher of the well-known Nepalese daily newspaper The Kathmandu Post as “biased” and “acting for anti-Chinese forces” with strong language. This was followed by an editorial, “Chinese Secrets Exacerbated the Coronavirus Crisis,” published by The Kathmandu Post based on the original publication by the Chicago Tribune. A strong oral statement from the Chinese embassy has sparked massive protests from the media community, some of which have described the action as “immoral” and “extremely disgusting”.
Nepalese are known for their optimism and warmth and are considered to be the friendliest in nature. At the same time, they are very sensitive to the adverse behavioral tendencies shown to them.
You are now starting to speak out against the Chinese people’s subservience to them. Protests such as the burning of Xi Jinping’s portrait have been held from time to time. China’s aggressive and insensitive stance towards Nepal and the people of Nepal will undoubtedly have serious implications for China in the long run. (Ani)
