Lhasa: Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in Tibet’s capital Lhasa on Thursday. This is the first time Jinping visited the region after taking over as the President of the country, thus making it a rare visit–he took over the position in 2013.

At the airport, Jinping was welcomed by locals and leaders of different communities.

“All regions and people of all ethnicities in Tibet will march toward a happy life in future,” Xi was heard saying.

He also visited Nyingchi, a town located close to Arunchal Pradesh.

According to state broadcaster China Central Television, the president also reviewed the Sichuan-Tibet railway.

Nyingchi had made news in June when China had inaugurated the 270-mile Lhasa-Nyingchi bullet train.
