Beijing Olympics: Military commander carrying torch

According to the Chinese newspaper Global Times, the regiment commander of the People’s Liberation Army has been included in the torch bearers of the Winter Olympics torch rally at the Beijing Olympics.

People’s Liberation Army Regiment Commander Chi Fabou was wounded on January 15, 2020 in a clash with the Indian Army in the Gulwan Valley.

The decision to include Chi Fabou, who was injured in a clash in the Gloucester Valley, at the Olympic torch rally is being criticized in India.

India has announced a boycott of both events in the Beijing Olympics torchbearer rally over the participation of a Chinese soldier wounded in a border clash in the Gulwan Valley.

Indian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Arandam Bagchi has said that the charge d’affaires of the Indian Embassy in China will not attend the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics.

He said that China’s move to include a military official injured in the clashes between the two countries in the Gulwan Valley as a torch bearer in the Olympic torch rally was regrettable.

Manish Tiwari, a member of the Lok Sabha from India’s opposition Congress party, says China has sent a clear message by including an injured soldier in the Golwan Valley in the Olympic torchbearers.
