India and China have agreed to implement a three-phase plan to disengage from parts of the Eastern Ladakh area.

The plan was discussed during the eighth round of India-China Corps Commander Level Meeting held in Chushul.

According to the Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD), the parties exchanged in-depth and constructive views along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Western Sector of India-China border areas.

In a statement, the MoD said: “Both sides agreed to maintain dialogue and communication through military and diplomatic channels, and, taking forward the discussions at this meeting, push for the settlement of other outstanding issues, so as to jointly maintain peace and tranquillity in the border areas.”

Since May, India and China have been engaged in a military standoff in contested territories along the LAC in Ladakh.

The face-off intensified in June and turned violent resulting in the killing of 20 Indian soldiers and an undisclosed number of casualties on the Chinese side.

In September, India and China agreed to ease ongoing tensions at the border and accelerate the disengagement of troops.

ANI reported sources stating that the plan will see the armoured vehicles being moved away from frontline deployment.

Indian troops would go near the administrative Dhan Singh Thapa post and the Chinese troops will move to their position on the east side of Finger 8.

The two sides will soon have another round of meetings.
