The Indian Army on Friday confirmed that disengagement has been completed at Pangong Tso (lake) – both on the southern and northern banks. The Indian troops have now moved back to their depth locations, Indian Army sources were quoted as saying.
Sources said the 10th round of Corps Commander-level talks scheduled to be held between the Indian Army and the People’s Liberation Army of China would focus on disengagement at three other friction points in eastern Ladakh, namely Gogra, Hot Springs and Depsang plains.
The talks will begin in Moldo, opposite Chushul, at 10 am on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh had earlier told Parliament that the Corps Commander of the two armies would meet within 48 hours of the disengagement completing at Pangong lake in eastern Ladakh.
It has been reported that while troops, weapons and other military hardware have been pulled back, bunkers, tents and other temporary structures on both the north and south banks of Pangong lake have also been dismantled by both sides.
This has also been verified by the two sides before making an announcement about the next round of talks tomorrow.
