China is using increased road construction in Tibet to penetrate Nepal, and could build border posts in those areas in the future, according to a report by the Nepalese government that ANI is accessing.
The report, compiled by the Ministry of Agriculture of the Nepal Ministry of Agriculture, contains a list of 11 locations, of which China has intervened in 10 locations covering approximately 33 hectares of Nepalese land by diverting the flow of rivers that act as a natural boundary has been.
The Chinese government is significantly expanding its road network in the so-called Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR), "due to which some rivers and their tributaries have changed their course and are flowing towards Nepal. The flow of rivers is gradually reducing the Nepalese areas and if it remains for some time that it would cede the maximum part of Nepal's land to TAR, "says the document received from ANI.
A total of 10 hectares of land were infiltrated into the Humla district when Chinese construction diverted the Bagdare Khola and Karnali rivers. Six hectares of Nepalese land were attacked in Rasuwa District when construction in Tibet diverted diversions to Sinjen, Bhurjuk and Jambu Khola.
China also claims a total of 11 hectares of Nepalese land as "falling in Tibet" with the diversion of Kharane Khola and Bhote Kosi in the Sindhupalchowk district.
Chinese road construction in Tibet has also diverted the flow of the Sumjung, Kam Khola and Arun rivers in the Sankhuwasabha district, which has affected nine hectares of Nepalese land. The document warned that Nepal would lose more land if appropriate measures were not taken in time.
"Of course, if land withdrawal by rivers continues, hundreds of hectares will go towards TAR. There is a high possibility that China will develop a Border Observation Post (BOP) of its armed police in these areas over time." Document states.
After the survey in the 1960s and the erection of pillars to determine the border with China, Nepal did not take any further steps to secure its border. A total of 100 pillars were erected on the north side of the border with China. While in India the number of columns is 8,553.
Recently, the world has seen escalation of China's territorial aggression on all sides of its border.
His actions led to a violent conflict with India near Ladakh. It had clashes with Vietnam and Malaysia in the South China Sea, pressured Taiwan with night exercises in the Taiwan Strait, and threatened Australia with the boycott of wine, beef, barley, and Chinese students.
Beijing has also introduced a new law – the Hong Kong Security Law – to improve control over the semi-autonomous city despite violent protests.
