China has pledged Rs 62.5 million as military aid to Nepal, signaling
Beijing's commitment to maintain close ties with the Maoist-led
government, Rastriya Samachar Samiti (RSS) said.

An agreement to this effect was signed by Defence Minister Ram Bahadur
Thapa during his recent visit to China.

According to the report, the Nepali delegation led by the Defence
Minsiter has in turn assured China of preventing any activity directed
against its communist neighbour from its soil.

Defence Minister Thapa, whose delegation Nepal Army General Chhatraman
Gurung and defense secretary Pratik Thapa, had visited China to observe
the military exercise "Warrior 2008" in Beijing.

During a meeting with Thapa, Chinese Minister Liang appreciated Nepal
government's one-China policy with regard to Tibet and Taiwan.

In Beijing, Thapa also met Vice Chairman of the Central Military
Commission, Guo Boxiong, which is the Chinese forces' highest body.

Besides the military aid, China on Friday donated medicines worth USD
20,000 to Chitwan-based B.P Koirala Memorial Medical Hospital.
