A day after reporting of Jinping’s unannounced visit to India’s strategically important region, including Nyingchi, bordering Arunachal Pradesh, state media reported his meeting with top military officials in Lhasa. According to reports, Jinping has underscored the importance of long-term stability and prosperity in Tibet.
The Global Times said in its news that Jinping met the top officials of the Chinese military’s Tibet command and called for the complete strengthening of the training work and war preparedness of the soldiers. This was Jinping’s first visit to Tibet as president, which lasted from Wednesday to Friday. But China’s official media kept the news related to it confidential until its conclusion on Friday.
