The Chinese military held an exercise for its Tibetan troops who were inducted into their service after undergoing a number of “loyalty tests,” including learning the mainland Chinese language and following their practices, said sources at ANI.
The Chinese, according to sources, are apparently trying to create a force like the Indian Border Special Force, which has many Tibetans specializing in mountain warfare.
Along with other Indian army units, they carried out rapid operations to give the country an advantage over the Chinese by capturing the heights along the southern shore of Pangong Tso in August of last year.
“Tibetan troops in the Chinese army are being trained for special operations and have recently held exercises in their rear areas,” the sources said.
The Chinese have tried to assimilate the Tibetans into their forces, but the majority of the people of the Tibet Autonomous Region have anti-Chinese sentiment due to its oppressive policies and are supporters of the Dalai Lama.
India and China have been at a military stalemate since the April-May period of last year and have yet to find solutions to defuse tensions at friction points, including the Hot Heights Springs-Gogra.
The Indian and Chinese sides have been speaking to each other for the past year and have held several rounds of talks at the military and diplomatic levels, but to no great result, except for the limited mutual withdrawal of men from both sides on the northern and southern shores of China. the Pangong Tso.
Indian agencies and forces have received reports that the Chinese are trying to recruit young Tibetans from across the vast Tibetan Autonomous Region.
