Chinese Government Asks Nepal to Boost Security Screening At Tribhuvan International Airport

The government of China has reportedly asked Nepal to strengthen security screening of travellers leaving for various cities of China from the Tribhuvan International Airport. The Chinese government has requested Nepal to boost airport security at particular time when large-scale search operation is ongoing in the Indian ocean, to find a missing Malaysia Airlines plane which was on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. There were 153 Chinese passengers out of 239, who were boarding the Malaysian jet.

At present, three Chinese airlines, namely, China Eastern, China Southern and Air China are running flights directly from Kathmandu to several cities in China, together with Shanghai, Beijing, Kunming, Lhasa, Chengdu and Guangzhou.

Mohan Krishna Sapkota, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation of Nepal, reveals that the Ministry has got a letter from the Chinese Embassy, which has requested the Ministry to adopt extra measures to make certain that passengers boarding planes headed for cities in China do not emerge as a threat. He also mentions that after receiving the request letter from Chinese embassy, the ministry has scheduled a meeting of concerned departments to examine matters associated with security.

The spokesperson Mohan Krishna Sapkota states that even though the security officials of Tribhuvan International Airport never miss out on anything related to security, the ministry has asked the concerned departments to tell their security staff to maintain extra vigilance so that loopholes in security can be avoided.
