While China and Nepal have no formal border or territorial disputes, with the two sides maintaining close bilateral relations, there have been concerns about China encroaching on Nepalese territory since 2015, with boundary markers being moved and China building houses on border areas that, they claim, are Chinese territory.
The latest reports come just months after Nepal found itself in the middle of a border dispute between China and another major regional power, India. Earlier this year, troops from the two nations clashed in Eastern Ladakh, which resulted in casualties on both sides, although Beijing has not officially commented on the numbers. India and China are currently engaged in ongoing military- and diplomatic-level dialogue in hopes of arriving at a “mutually acceptable solution.”
