China agree on 'early and complete' disengagement of troops from eastern Ladakh

China agree on 'early and complete' disengagement of troops from eastern Ladakh”

After the fourth round of Corps Commander-level talks, the Indian army said both sides are committed to "complete disengagement" of troops, adding the process is "intricate" and it requires "constant verification".

Officials, however, said India's engagement with China on multilateral fora like Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa (BRICS), Russia-India-China (RIC) and Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) were expected to continue.

He said the two sides have agreed during the conversation of the Special Representatives to work towards complete disengagement of the troops along the LAC and de-escalation from India-China border areas for full restoration of peace and tranquillity.

The NSA, during his interaction with the Chinese side, had made it clear that both sides will have to move back to their permanent locations for the matter to be sorted out completely and to the satisfaction of both sides.

"Both sides are engaged in discussions through established diplomatic and military channels to achieve this objective expeditiously", Srivastava said, an indication that the Chinese side was not adhering to the agreement. Officials said that Chinese troops are still stationed at the Depsang Plains region, Gogra and the Fingers region along the Pangong Lake, where India and China had created a neutral zone. However, the Chinese are still camping on the ridge line.

"The Chinese have not shown any signs of de-escalation as they continue to maintain their heavy troop deployment of nearly 40,000 troops supported by heavy weaponry like air defence systems, armoured personnel carriers and long-range artillery in front and depth areas", news agency ANI quoted its source as saying.

India's move to firewall key sectors from Chinese presence signals that the south Asian nation is willing to bear costs in the short run in order to reduce exposure of critical sectors, said Harsh Pant, a professor of global relations at King's College London. At Patrolling Point 15, the distance between troops is around 8 km. The Chinese Army had retreated as per the consensus, but again returned. The countries are locked in a standoff that is over 10-week old, at multiple points, hitherto unprecedented along the border.

India on Thursday said it expected China to "sincerely work" with it for complete disengagement and de-escalation and full restoration of peace and tranquility in their border areas, as a fresh round of bilateral diplomatic talks is likely to be held on Friday to push forward the disengagement process in eastern Ladakh.

Both the countries noted that it was necessary to ensure at the earliest complete disengagement of the troops along the LAC and de-escalation from India-China border areas for full restoration of peace and tranquillity and also agreed that the two sides should not allow differences to become disputes.

The crucial meeting was held to break the logjam and pave the way for another round of Corps Commander-level meet.

India and China made a decision to disengage after the clash at Galwan Valley on June 15 in which 20 Indian soldiers had died, although the Chinese side had also suffered casualties as reported by state-run Global Times but the Chinese foreign ministry has refused to divulge details. Both sides began the disengagement process from July 6 following the talks between Doval and Wang who were Special Representatives for the boundary question.
