SPECIAL FRONTIER FORCE – PEKING – TAWANG – NIXON CONNECTION

Special Frontier Force – Peking – Tawang – Nixon  Connection. In 1972,  at the request of Nixon administration, I visited Tawang.  I call it Peking – Tawang – Nixon Connection.

I am sharing pictures of Sela Pass near Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh (North East Frontier Agency or NEFA), India, to recall my visit to Tawang in 1972 at the request of Nixon administration. President Richard M. Nixon after his famous visit to Peking to establish friendly relations with Communist China, surprised me when his Administration contacted my Unit to place surveillance equipment inside Tibet to monitor China’s nuclear tests. To perform that task, my Unit personnel did not require Passports or Visa documents for Tibet is claimed by them as their own territory.
