Nepaleses are arriving in Brazil and other European countries, with the influx taking place at a time when the Nepalesean community is facing increasing threats, the Nepali government has said.
Nepal, which has its capital, Kathmandu, on the border with China, has faced a rise in attacks by Chinese-backed groups, as well as a sharp rise in the number of asylum applications from Nepal, according to the Nepal government.
Chinese and Nepalesian migrants are among the first to arrive in the country after the Nepalis rejected the “one country, two systems” policy in a landmark referendum on February 12.
The Nepalesea government has been facing growing threats from China, which sees the country as part of its territory.
China has accused the Nepalees of interfering in the political process and of supporting a separatist movement in Nepal.
The two countries have been locked in a standoff over the issue of control of disputed territories, which China says is its right to build.
