Troops disengaged from most parts of LAC, claims China
Beijing : Amid doubts on China's actions against their words over border tension with India, the Beijing has claimed that the troops have been disengaged from "most localities" and the situation is easing.
In the last talks with China, India has pitched for early and complete disengagement of troops along the LAC. China had claimed "positive progress in talks."
As border troops have disengaged in most localities, the situation on the ground is de-escalating and the temperature is coming down,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said in Beijing.
No immediate reaction has been recorded from MEA on the new update.
The Chinese assertion came in response to a query from Global Times based on media reports and information received from “sources”, as the journalist claimed. The journalist asked the spokesperson to confirm if it was true that disengagement had been completed in Galwan Valley, Hot Springs and Kongka Pass and that the only area left still was Pangong.
The spokesperson said the two sides were currently preparing for the fifth round of commander-level talks to resolve outstanding issues on the ground.
