India-China withdrawal of troops from the controversial Pangong Lake


India and China have withdrawn troops from the disputed Pangong Lake area of ​​Ladakh, adjacent to the Himalayas.

This was stated in a joint statement issued by the Indian Ministry of Defense. News from the BBC.

The border between India and China has not been clearly marked in the area, causing tensions between the two countries’ troops. In June last year, at least 24 Indian and Chinese soldiers were killed in a bloody clash.

Since then, both sides have deployed large numbers of troops on the north and south shores of Pangong Lake.

The deployment of thousands of troops from the two countries in the last few months in India’s Ladakh and Chinese-controlled Aksai-China areas has raised fears of a possible clash.

On February 11, India and China announced the withdrawal of their troops from the Pangong Lake area of ​​Ladakh. Since then, the evacuation work was going on.

India and China have been at loggerheads over the border for decades, and in 1972 there was a war between them.

The two countries have a 2,100-mile border, which is not clearly defined in many places.

Both countries now say they will work to maintain peace in other areas along the two countries’ long border.

Last week, Chinese authorities released a video of June clashes between Chinese and Indian troops in the Galvan Valley.

On Friday, for the first time, China acknowledged that four of its soldiers had been killed.
