KATHMANDU, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping said here on Saturday that the Chinese side stands ready to enhance communication and cooperation with the Nepali legislatures and jointly consolidate the friendship between the two countries.

Not long after his arrival, Xi said, he has been deeply impressed by the warmth and hospitality toward China shown by the president, prime minister, ministers, party leaders and the people of Nepal.

Extending welcome to Xi on behalf of the National Assembly, Timilsina said it is an honor of all the Nepali people to receive the Chinese president.
Under Xi's wise leadership, China has made remarkable achievements, he said, adding that he believes the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation will surely come true.
