Chinese Troops ‘Not Withdrawing’ From Pangong Tso Lake Area As India-China Look To Disengage

According to Reuters, the steps taken on Monday were important in reducing the tension between India and China at the LAC, but it will not have much effect on the army or their preparations in the volatile region. Experts say that the Indian army will have to be prepared to deal with the new realities of the border and a belligerent China.

Reuters quoted a senior army official as saying that it may take two to three weeks to take the initial steps in the contested region. Only then will there be a meeting between the army commanders and then the next step will be taken. This means that the deployment of the army will drag on for a few weeks, if not months.

The Indian Army is also concerned that the Chinese PLA troops are present in large numbers of LAC, and Beijing can walk in the reverse direction at any time. Therefore, the Indian Army will have to be very alert from its side and will not think of reducing its troops from the region.

Chinese state media – the Global Times acknowledged that India and China had agreed to withdraw troops from after Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Indian National Security Advisor Ajit Doval spoke on Sunday night.

The GT report also stated that – the details of the agreement, such as who will withdraw first – Indian or Chinese troops could be carried out in a “silent” manner, to avoid instigation sentiments, especially in India.
