Kathmandu: The Chinese Ambassador in Kathmandu, Hou Yanqi, has access to almost all places in Himalayan Republic, including PMO and Army headquarters.
Media reports said the Nepalese President Bidhya Devi Bhandari has invited her for exclusive dinner and Tourism Minister Yogesh Bhattarai facilitated special outdoor photo shoots for Hou. The reports said the Chinese ambassador often uploads her ‘model-like’ pictures on social media.
Sources said she is seen as a key influencing factor behind PM Oli’s unexpected move to amend a map which includes disputed territories with India.
Hou is said to be on good terms as well with NCP Chairman Pushp Kamal Dahal Prachanda, the former Prime Minister of Nepal.
