Speaking on the occasion, Oli said the presentation of rhinos to China would help further consolidate historic ties between the two neighbouring countries. He also expressed hope that the rhinos would be reared in a good environment as he underlined the need for further expanding bilateral relations between Nepal and China.
Aged between 1-2 years, Bhadra weighs around 900 kgs while Rupasi weighs about 1,200 kgs, according to the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation.
The rhinos will be dispatched to China by a special cargo plane. The endangered wildlife species are to be released in Chimelong Safari Park in Guangzhou of China, according to officials.
Nepal is home to around 650 one-horned rhinoceros, according to the latest census.
