#NewSilkRoad (Again) Shifting to South Asia?

Attempts to paint Nepal-China friendship as something that is against India's interests should be discouraged. China will not want to appear as antagonising her other partners and Nepal should take care of such sensibilities. The resurgence of Nepal will benefit both of its neighbours, and Kathmandu should try to convince them of this. Nepal will need mature leadership, strategic planning and a homegrown commitment to move forward with her own interests in mind. Nepal's resurgence will also be in the best interest of the entire pan-Himalayan region, from Tibet to the Bay of Bengal.
