India, China reach agreement on disengagement in Ladakh

As per the agreement reached by the two sides, India and China will withdraw the forward deployment in a phased and coordinated manner, the Defence Minister said in the Rajya Sabha.
China will keep its troops to the east of the Finger 8 at the north bank of Pangong Lake while India will keep its troops near Finger 3.
These are mutual and reciprocal steps and any structures that had been built by both sides since April 2020 in both North and South Bank area will be removed and the landforms will be restored.
Patrolling will be resumed only when both sides reach an agreement in diplomatic and military talks that would be held subsequently.
Rajnath Singh recalled how China illegally occupied approximately 38,000 sq. kms in the Union Territory of Ladakh, mainly during the 1962 conflict.
He reminded that under the so-called Sino-Pakistan ‘Boundary Agreement’ of 1963, Pakistan illegally ceded 5,180 sq. kms. of Indian territory in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir to China.
“China, thus is in illegal occupation of more than 43,000 sq. kms of Indian territory”, he said.
