Vibhuti Kakkar, New Delhi: The disengagement process implemented on both sides of the Pangong Tso lake between the Indian and the Chinese troops have been completed, a source said on Friday.

The two armies reached a conclusion and agreed on the disengagement process at the North and South banks of Pangong lake in order to cease forward the deployment of troops. The back-away comes after 9 months of long border standoff in Eastern Ladakh.

China’s defence ministry spokesman Senior Colonel Wu Qian in a press release said that the Chinese and the Indian front line troops have agreed on a disengagement plan on both the sides of Pangong lake in Eastern Ladakh.

Some photographs and short videos of thinning down of troops and dismantling of bunkers and camps and other facilities by the Chinese troops were released by the Indian Army on Tuesday in areas around the Pangong lake in Eastern Ladakh.

The visuals showed the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) using a bulldozer to flatten some of the surfaces as part of infantry disengagement.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh in a statement while talking about the disengagement plan that China will pull back its troops to the east of finger 8 areas in the Northern bank of Pangong lake while the Indian troops will be based at their permanent base at Dhan Singh Thapa near Finger 3 in the region.

India also did not concede anything in the sustained talks with China and it will not allow even an inch of its territory to be taken by anyone.
