46 nations’ troops to come to Tibet: China

BEIJING: China's defence ministry will be taking 96 military officials from 46 countries to different places in Tibet. They will be shown military installations in the Chinese province bordering India from Friday onwards. 

The move, which is the first instance of military officials of a number of countries to restrictive areas of Tibet, is significant because it will happen during Chinese president Xi Jinping's visit to India and Sri Lanka. Xi is due to arrive in India for a 3-day visit on Wednesday. 

"The visit will enhance the officials' knowledge of the lives of the people of Tibet and promote cooperation between Chinese and foreign militaries," the official Xinhua said.
