Xi made his comments while speaking to Nepalese Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli during a historic meeting between the neighboring nations. Xi is the first Chinese president to visit Nepal in over 20 years, Reuters reported.
“Anyone attempting to split China in any part of the country will end in crushed bodies and shattered bones,” Xi was quoted as saying by Chinese state broadcaster CCTV, according to Fox News and other American outlets. “And any external forces backing such attempts dividing China will be deemed by the Chinese people as pipe-dreaming.”
The meeting between the two leaders covered a wide variety of topics, including a study that will look into the feasibility of a massive railway project connecting China and Nepal as part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative.
Other issues that the leaders signed agreements on included “connectivity, security, border management, trade, tourism and education,” Fox reported.
