Leh: China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has started pulling back its troops and the Chinese soldiers were seen folding their tents and structures at Patrol Point-14 in Galwan Valley of Eastern Ladakh on Monday, according to media reports.

Reports received at Leh point to rearward movement of vehicles of the PLA at general area Galwan, Hotspring and Gogra.

Patrol Point 14 in Galwan is the same spot where on June 15, the PLA troops had launched a barbaric attack on unarmed Indian Army personnel who were patrolling in that area and were engaged in efforts to diffuse the border situation. The violent clash left 20 Indian soldiers martyred but not before they had inflicted heavy casualties on the Chinese side.

According to available reports, following prolonged talks both sides have agreed to disengage. It still remains to be seen how much the Chinese would honour the mutual accord reached at the Commander level talks to respect the LAC.
