Hooda’s China visit from Dec 14

As reported exclusively by, GOC-in-C Northern Army Command Lt Gen DS Hooda will lead a delegation of military officers to China from December 14 to 19 on the invitation of Chinese Government.
Northern Army Command spokesman Col SD Goswami confirmed the visit of Lt Gen Hooda to China for six days from December 14 to 19 as head of the delegation of military officers.
Official sources said the visit assumed significance as in 2010 the Chinese Army had refused permission to the then Army Commander Lt Gen BS Jaswal to visit China on the ground that he was posted in the  “disputed area”.
“The visit of the Army delegation was aimed at ensuring greater cooperation between the two military forces in areas of mutual interest. The delegation will interact and exchange views with senior People’s Liberation Army (PLA) officers,” sources said, adding the delegation will visit various military and civil establishments in China including PLA Headquarters at Beijing and Lanzhou military region.
The delegation will also exchange views on measures to usher in greater peace and tranquility along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh/Xingjiang province of China.
