Indo-China border dispute: Both countries 'agree' to withdraw troops on the Ladakh border

Chinese and Indian forces have agreed to withdraw thousands of troops from the northern and southern shores of Lake Pangongsu in Ladakh. China's Defense Ministry announced on Wednesday that it had begun withdrawing troops from both sides.

Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian said in a statement that the process of withdrawing troops from the front line had begun on Wednesday, in line with the agreement reached during the ninth round of talks between the military commanders.

No statement has been issued by the Indian Army so far but Defense Minister Rajnath Singh is expected to make a statement in Parliament today.

Indian media quoted government officials as saying that talks were held between the ground level commanders on Tuesday, during which various aspects of the withdrawal of troops on both sides of the lake were considered under the agreement. Talks were also held on Wednesday.

The agreement is being implemented, but the process of withdrawing troops has not yet begun.
