The occupation of Rui village has been carried out systematically by China in the final two years.

Because the village figures in the map of Nepal and is component of the Himalayan nation, the residents have always been involved with the country’s id. But the Nepal federal government, at the behest of China, is a lot more engaged in building synthetic disputes with India about boundaries and a few villages that belong to India.

Last 12 months, resources said, Nepal federal government realised China experienced been annexing their land nevertheless they most well-liked to keep on being silent.

But, in its place of objecting to Chinese unlawful profession and rising infiltration into the Nepalese boundaries, the KP Sharma Oli government is seeking to unnecessarily interfere in India’s sovereignty.
