Nepal-America: Nepal’s Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda is currently on a tour of America to attend the United Nations General Assembly. Meanwhile, America has announced an aid of 2 million dollars to Nepal. China has been surprised by the announcement of this amount given to strengthen democracy in Nepal. Such a huge amount has been announced by America at a time when Nepal’s PM Prachanda is going on an official visit to China.
Prachanda, who was in the US to attend the United Nations General Assembly, participated in the “Democracy Delivers” program of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) in New York. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and USAID Administrator Samantha Power also participated in the event. During the event, Blinken and Power expressed their views on democratic progress and reforms in Nepal and announced $20 million in aid for the Himalayan country.
Nepal will be given 2 million dollars for this reason
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and USAID Administrator Samantha Power announced a partnership with the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation to help people support philanthropic work in Nepal. Nepali PM Dahal attended the event leading the first group of countries supported by USAID’s Democracy Delivers Initiative, the US State Office said. During the program, USAID announced that Nepal would receive $2 million to stabilize the economy, promote job and wage growth, mobilize investment, and deliver a democratic dividend.
China got hit with American help to Nepal
In recent times, America is continuously helping China. Nepal recently received $6.9 million from the US for democratic reforms in this country. On the other hand, China is angry that America is interfering in Nepal. China sees America’s presence in Nepal as a threat from the beginning. This is the reason why China has many times warned the Nepalese government to distance itself from America. Nepal has recently decided to implement America’s MCC compact at the ground level. Prachanda had already announced before his visit to China that his aim is to get maximum grants from Xi Jinping through BRI, and not loans.
