Chairman of Unified CPN (Maoist) Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said Asian countries should develop a unified security strategy to combat US influence in South Asia.
In an interview with the BBC, he said India, China and Nepal should work together to counter American power.
Dahal is on a week-long visit to the UK to train his party supporters on the latest policies and strategies adopted by the party after the recent central committee meeting.
Dahal further said the emerging Asian economies should rely less on the West, especially the United States.Â
He said being the sole super power, the US was trying to have a greater influence in Asia, but India and China should come together to provide security and prosperity to their people, BBC reported.
Dahal also said, Delhi was wrong to think he was closer to China than to India.
He said, he wanted a good relationship with both neighbouring countries.
Dahal acknowledged India helped his party and other political parties of Nepal reach the 12-point agreement that paved path for the then underground Maoist rebels to come to mainstream politics.
But then, he said, Delhi lost its warmth towards the Maoists when he became the Prime Minister following the victory in the Constituent Assembly elections.
Dahal also said his party was striving to change the basic structure of Nepal through the Constituent Assembly.
He rejected any possibility of the restoration of monarchy, claiming over 90 percent of Nepali people were opposed to it. nepalnews.com
