    This was a 'sudden' visit as per other reports in the media.

    It is important to note Hu Shisheng, a leading South Asia scholar at the China Institutes for Contemporary International Relations (CICIR),statement that China wanted “to do whatever it can to stabilise Nepal.”

    And his “The unstable situation in Nepal provide golden opportunities for those who want to play the Tibet Card to create problems for China in Tibetan regions."

    It should not be surprising that this sudden visit coincides with the Border Talks between India and Nepal, scheduled to take place in New Delhi on January 16 and 17.

    China is looking hard for inroads through Nepal. They along with Myanmar are of more strategic importance for them than Pakistan.

    Chinese are not like Indians.

    They have an eye all over and their nose can sniff trouble and opportunities!

    But still don't get why the visit was so brief. Both should have made a big show as warming-up for Sino-India, and NP-India border talks

    Maybe he was en route to Pakistan and had a "nature call".. he dumbed it and flew again. Hence the briefness.:scared2:
