New Delhi: Shifting ahead to resolve the border dispute between two neighbouring nations along Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh, China has reportedly agreed to mutual step-wise de-escalation from a couple of areas of friction level within the region.
As per reviews, China has agreed to withdraw 30 per cent of its force with eight days from the area.
“The Chinese side extended this proposal during the 8th Corps Commanders meeting. It is being studied at various levels,” a senior Army officer said, confirming the proposal.
The Corps Commanders of the two sides last met in Chushul, the Indian side of the LAC, on November 6.
“Both the countries have agreed to work on a three-step disengagement proposal, including de-escalation of troops, but nothing has happened on the ground as of now,” the officer told IANS.
He said the ninth round of talks is likely to happen this week but the dates are not yet decided.
The progress of disengagement would be verified with the help of drones and delegation meetings.
