Indian, Chinese Troops Dance Together, Post Doklam Standoff

A year after the armies of India and China were locked in a standoff at Doklam, soldiers of the two countries were seen chanting, linking arms and dancing in the backdrop of a joint military drill in a video released by the Indian Army.

In between the obstacle courses and field manoeuvres, there was dancing and music, with fancy footwork extending to the football field where teams from both sides played a friendly match.

The armies of the two sides resumed their annual military drill ‘Hand in Hand’ on December 10 and it will continue until December 23 at Chengdu in China.

“Ex #HandInHand2018. ‘Bole So Nihal Sat Sri Akal’. Troops of #IndianArmy & #ChineseArmy sharing lighter moments after practising gruesome Battle Obstacle Course. #Synergy #Interoperability #UnitedNations @SpokespersonMoD @PIB_India,” the Army tweeted.
