Tensions between the two countries have increased since the violent clash between India and China in the Galvan Valley.
China says that it is sending twenty martial arts trainers to Tibet to train their forces.
China has not given any reason for this decision, but these trainers are being sent at a time when there is increased tension on the border with India.
Twenty Indian soldiers were killed in a clash between Indian and Chinese soldiers in the Galvan Valley region of Ladakh on the night of 15–16 June. Chinese soldiers were also killed, but no concrete information has been released about their numbers.
Under the 1996 agreement between India and China, the Line of Actual Control prohibits the use of arms or explosives by soldiers of India and China.
According to Hong Kong media, news has been published in China’s media websites about the army’s special martial arts trainers being sent to Tibet.
The government channel CCTV had said in its report that twenty fighters associated with the Ambo Fight Club will live in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. However, it has not been told in the Chinese media that these trainers will give training to the soldiers posted along the border with India.
Both China and India have held each other responsible for the violent clashes in the Galvan Valley.
Tensions have increased immensely since the violent clash between the two nuclear-rich countries.
This trouble-torn area of Galvan valley in Ladakh is near Aksai Chin area. Aksai Chin is currently in control of China.

However, tensions between India and China have been increasing around LAC for the past few months.
Both countries are accusing each other of adopting an aggressive attitude.
