Disengagement at Pangong Tso completed: Report

New Delhi : The disengagement process of both Indian and Chinese troops has completed at Pangong Tso, a report said on Friday. On Saturday, a commander level talks has been scheduled to discuss further in the matter.

After a series of talks over the course of nine months, the disengagement began earlier this month in a phased manner.

On February 10, China's Defence Ministry announced that the troops from both the sides will begin the disengagement process. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh officially mentioned about it in the Rajya Sabha next day.

With this 10th round of talks between the commanders will be held on Saturday at the Chinese LAC.

The Indian Army on Tuesday released short videos and photographs showing thinning down of troops and dismantling of bunkers, camps and other facilities by the Chinese military in the areas around the Pangong lake in eastern Ladakh in line with the agreed disengagement process between the two sides.

In the video, Chinese tanks can be seen moving away from the border. An Indian tank can also be seen moving back from the location.

Before the disengagement, the senior Army officials of both India and China met and shook hands showing agreement on disengagement.
