Kolkata, Dec 10 (ANI): As part of bilateral exchange programme and Confidence Building Measure (CBM), a delegation of Chinese Army led by Lieutenant General Shu Yu Tai, Chief of the People's Liberation Army's Tibet Military Region Command visited the Headquarters of the Corps based at Sukna in West Bengal.

This was disclosed by Major General Munish Sibal of Indian Army's Eastern Command at Kolkata on Wednesday.

"It is a part of the bilateral exchange that takes place between both the countries from time to time. You are also aware that our army commandos also visited China in the month of August-September......So these are bilateral exchanges that are taking place," said Major General Sibal.

Lieutenant General Yu Tai is reciprocating a visit to China by the GOC-in-C (General Officer Commanding-in-Chief) of India's Eastern Command.

Tensions have risen between India and China in the last few months over reports in the Indian media about border intrusions by the Chinese army.

A visit by the Dalai Lama to Arunachal Pradesh, which China considers to be south Tibet, has added to the mistrust between the neighbours. (ANI)
