China has removed the road building equipment from face-off site.
After two months of the standoff on the Doklam plateau, Indian and Chinese troops are pulling off their troops.
The agreement was mutual and there are signs of retreat from Indian troops. But it is unlikely to say the same about Chinese troops. But the situation seems to wind up soon. In an official statement from Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), the announcement of the withdrawal of troops was made. MEA is calling this as ‘Doklam Disengagement Understanding’. A press statement made by MEA was as follows, ‘In recent weeks, India and China have maintained diplomatic communication in respect of the incident at Doklam. During these communications, we were able to express our views and convey our concerns and interests. On this basis, expeditious disengagement of border personnel at the face-off site at Doklam has been agreed to and is on-going.’
The dispute started from June 16. Since then, India has kept its diplomatic channels open for settlement. The de-escalation happens before Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to China for BRICS Summit. It will be held in early September at Xiamen in China.
Even though the retreat of Chinese troops is unclear, Chinese official news agency ‘Xinhua’ stated that India has begun pulling off their troops. Also, China has removed the road building equipment from face-off site.
