India and China had a stalemate along the Royal Line of Control (LAC) from April-May last year due to the actions of the Chinese Army and the disengagement process was reached after several rounds of military and diplomatic talks.
The process of disengaging the north and south shores of Lake Pangong was completed by the two nations and further disengagement is taking place at other points of friction.
The armies of India and China agreed to withdraw in some areas and military troops have also withdrawn to maintain a pre-confrontational state that occurred last year.
In early February, after the completion of the disengagement in the Pangong Lake area, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar emphasized that both sides should now quickly resolve the remaining issues along LAC in eastern Ladakh.
Jaishankar said that once the disengagement at all sticking points is complete, the two sides could also consider a further reduction of troops in the area and work towards restoring peace and tranquility.
