When Nirmla Sitharaman taught Chinese soldiers Hindi at Nathu La

The visit which is part of her familiarisation with all the formations of the Indian Army & the Indian Air Force (IAF) comes close on the heels of her visit to Northern Command recently and her visit to Sikkim yesterday.

In a video shared by the official Twitter handle of the Defense Ministry of India, Nirmala Sitharaman was seen teaching Chinese soldiers how to say namaste.

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, on her visit to the Nathu La area on the Sino-Indian border on Saturday, not only interacted with the Army and Indo-Tibetan Border Police officials, but also with the Chinese soldiers posted across the border. "Acknowledged a row of Chinese soldiers from across the fence who were taking pictures on my reaching Nathu La", the accompanying tweet read.

Sitharaman then asks the Chinese equivalent of "Namastey".

Alleged Killers Of Kim Jong Un's Half-Brother Plead Not Guilty
South Korean and USA officials have said that Kim Jong-un's regime was behind the murder, but North Korea denies the allegation. It was the first plea since their arrest a few days after the February 13 killing at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The minister greets the officers with folded hands and a "Namaste". Chinese soldiers then explain that they nǐ hǎo while greeting people.

Earlier last month, the Defence Minister had visited the Siachen Glacier, the world's highest and coldest battlefield, and also some other forward posts in the Ladakh region and took stock of the security situation in the area.

The bemused Chinese soldiers hit it right when they burst out it was a "Ni Hao" or a Chinese "hello, how are you". Sitharaman's survey assumes significance as is come a day after the government claimed that the status quo at the site has not changed since the disengagement on August 28.

Sitharaman, accompanied by vice chief of army staff Lt Gen Sarath Chand and GOC-in-C Eastern Command Lt Gen Abhay Krisha, was received at the Tezpur Airforce Station by GOC Gajraj Corps Lt Gen AS Bedi, senior officers of the Indian Army and IAF.
