Nirmala Sitharaman Explains ‘Namaste’ To Chinese Soldiers On Nathu La Border, And It’s Absolutely COOL

Updated on 9 October, 2017 at 8:56 pm By

Ever since she took charge as India’s first full-time woman defense minister, Nirmala Sitharaman has been praised by all quarters for her handling of the ministry. She has been touring military installations across the country to better understand the needs of the armed forces personnel and the defense equipment needed to protect the nation.

From air bases in Gujarat to the Siachen base camp, Sitharaman has been speaking with top defense officials, holding meetings with them and understanding the security situation of the country, including counter-terrorist operations in J&K.

This time the Defense Minister is visiting one of the most significant areas along India’s borders – Nathu La in Sikkim. The heavily militarized frontier point is the place where Indian troops defeated the Chinese in a battle in 1967, two years after the 1965 Indo-Pak war.

Tensions between India and China have been on an all-time high in the past few months at Doklam, just 30 kms in a straight line to the northeast from Nathu La. Yet the Defense Minister set a wonderful diplomatic example by greeting Chinese soldiers who were taking her photographs from their side of the border.

But that is not all! The Defense Minister met some of the Chinese soldiers stationed at Nathu La. And a video from their short meeting is going viral for a wonderful reason.

In the video, which the Defense Minister shared on her official Twitter handle, she is seen speaking with the soldiers and explaining to them what ‘Namaste’ means.

Here is the video. It is so cool you might assume that India and China are old allies and that Doklam was just a bad dream.



Twitterati praised Sitharaman.
