Defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman's unscripted interaction with Chinese soldiers on the border has not only gone viral in India, but also in China, where both experts and internet users on Sunday welcomed her "goodwill" gesture.

Air Force chief Air Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa briefed Defence Minister Sitharaman at the conference on the current status of the IAF and the efforts made in the recent past.

The Doklam standoff shows that China and India have witnessed growing mistrust and misunderstanding and it has exerted a massive negative impact on cooperation between the two countries, said Qian.

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.

Greeting them with a customary "namaste", she asked the PLA officials if they knew what it meant.

She later met Sikkim Chief Minister Pawan Chamling at his official residence and sought the state government's intervention in sorting out issues, mostly concerning land, between the Army and the state's forest department. She also warmly "acknowledged the row of Chinese soldiers from across the fence".

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, who undertook a whirlwind tour of defence bases across the country, today called her visits an "eye-opening experience" and stressed on the integration of the three armed forces.

Her interaction with the troops of the PLA also sparked positive response among the Chinese netizens on popular social media websites.

A man walks inside a conference room used for meetings between military commanders of China and India, at the Indian side of the Indo-China border at Bumla, in the northeastern Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh, in 2009. The Defence Minister said keeping the morale of the forces high at all times was a top priority for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government.

On the other hand, the country has said that the Sikkim section of the India-China border has been delineated by historical convention and said that the country should abide by this "fact".

"Maintaining Sino-Indian friendship is a strategic instinct and a rational choice for China", it adds.
