Xi Jinping took power in 2011. After this, this is the first time that he has visited Tibet. On Wednesday, President Xi Jinping arrived at Nyingchi’s airport. After this, the Chinese President inspected the basin of the Brahmaputra River and its tributaries.
Jinping has visited Nyingchi, a Tibetan border town located close to Arunachal Pradesh. He was welcomed by the local people and officials of various ethnic groups.

Nyingchi also came into the limelight in June when China fully operationalized its first bullet train in Tibet. This train connects Lhasa, the provincial capital of Tibet, with Ningchi.
Let us tell you that China claims Arunachal Pradesh as part of South Tibet, which India has always rejected.
Many Chinese leaders visit Tibet from time to time. But in the recent past, the visit of top leaders like the head of the ruling Communist Party and President Xi Jinping has caught everyone’s attention.
Explain that the 3,488-km Line of Actual Control (LAC) is involved in the India-China border dispute. At the same time, Chinese President Xi had said some time ago that the new bullet rail line will play an important role in safeguarding border stability.
He was pointing towards the Arunachal border with India. Nyingchi is a border town of Tibet located close to Arunachal.
