Sitharaman had earlier visited Nathu La area on the China-India border and interacted with army and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) officials.

The video, tweeted by the Defence Minister's official Twitter handle this morning, shows Ms Sitharaman chatting with Chinese soldiers at the border at Nathu-La in Sikkim.

Defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman had a brief conversation with Chinese soldiers during her maiden visit to the Nathu La border post in Sikkim and was even seen teaching them how to say "Namaste".

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

Sitharaman greets the officers with folded hands and a "namaste".

Then the minister asked the soldier what that would translate into Chinese, to which the soldier replied, "Ni hao".

When informed about the crime, cops took the family to the hospital for treatment and her medical examination. On their way back home, the couple were waylaid by four men near Neergajani village at around 11 pm.

When Indian soldiers present there try to prompt the answer, she promptly stops them, telling them to let the Chinese figure out the meaning on their own.

Sitharaman then asks the Chinese equivalent of "Namastey".

After Doklam crisis, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will address top Army brass during the commanders' conference tomorrow.

She was accorded a guard of honour on her arrival at Nathu La.

The Doklam standoff between India and China started after Indian Army stopped the construction of a road in the area which is disputed between China and Bhutan.

The minister who was accompanied by army Vice Chief Lt Gen Sarath Chand and Eastern Command Lt. Gen. Abhay Krishna was received at Tezpur Airforce Station by Gajraj Corps commander Lt Gen A.S. Bedi and other senior dignitaries of the Army and the Air Force. The Indian government, in a press release, had said that both countries will withdraw its troops from the area.
