Qinghai-Tibet Railway may extend to Nepal

China plans to extend the newly-built Qinghai-Tibet railway into neighbouring Nepal in order to expand trade with South Asia, Xinhua News Agency yesterday quoted a top Tibetan official as saying.
Qiangba Puncog, chairman of the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR), made the remarks to visiting Nepalese Deputy Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli in Lhasa.

 "Tibet is a remote region and is looking forward to constructing a new passage to South Asia to tap the huge potential for bilateral trade," Puncog said on Sunday. "The railway extension will greatly promote economic exchanges."
