Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman came to Sikkim to visit Nathula Pass.

Notably, recent media reports have suggested that Chinese soldiers remain in the vicinity of the Doklam standoff site, in increased numbers.

Accompanied by Army and government officials, the minister asks Chinese soldiers if they know the meaning of "Namaste", and then goes on explaining the same.

The Defence Minister had visited Nathu La border on Sunday and had an interesting conversation with the Chinese soldiers at the Sikkim border.

The video had been posted on Sitharaman's official Twitter handle and the report about her visit had been widely carried in the Indian media.

In the first video (see above), she is seen greeting the People's Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers by saying "Namaste" - an Indian greeting - before chatting to the officials.

China is stronger than India militarily and economically, but Bejing considers New Delhi to be a rival.
