India-China Disengagement Completed in Pangong Tso, Corps Commander-Level Talks Tomorrow | India News


NEW DELHI: The withdrawal process of Indian and Chinese troops on both sides of Lake Pangong has been completed, a source said on Friday.
The two armies reached an agreement on the withdrawal on the north and south shores of Pangong Lake that obliges both sides to cease the deployment of troops in a “staggered, coordinated and verifiable” manner. The move comes after a nine-month border clash in eastern Ladakh.
On February 10, the spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Defense, Major Colonel Wu Qian, announced in a short press release that the Chinese and Indian front-line troops on the southern and northern shores of Lake Pangong in eastern Ladakh began a synchronized and organized disconnect.
With this, the 10th round of corps commander-level talks between the two countries will also take place tomorrow on the Chinese side of the Royal Line of Control (LAC) in Moldo.
The two sides will discuss the disconnection of other friction points after the disconnection of the north and south shores of Pangong Lake. It will discuss Gogra, Hot Springs, and the strategically located Depsang Plains.
The Indian military on Tuesday released short videos and photos showing the thinning of troops and the dismantling of bunkers, camps and other facilities by the Chinese military in the areas around Pangong Lake in eastern Ladakh in accordance with the process of separation agreed between the two parties.
The footage also showed the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) using a bulldozer to flatten some structures and vehicles with troops and equipment preparing to retreat to the rear bases as part of the infantry withdrawal.
