Indian Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman's day-long visit to Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim on Saturday had an unexpected bonus - an exchange with Chinese soldiers, a video of which was widely shared on social media.

The video, tweeted by the Defence Minister's official Twitter handle, shows Sitharaman chatting with Chinese soldiers at the border at Nathu-La in Sikkim.

In the short clip, the Defence Minister is seen greeting troops with her hands folded in a "namaste."

"Namaste! You know what 'namaste' is?" she asks a Chinese soldier who is acting as a translator.

"Nice to meet you," guesses the Chinese soldier, smiling.

"What would you say in Chinese?" asks the minister.

"Ni hao," he responds.

One by one, the Chinese soldiers present greet the minister with enthusiastic "namastes" and "ni haos".
