India and China have agreed for disengagement in North and South bank of Pangong Lake: Rajnath Singh
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh today informed that India and China have agreed for disengagement in the North and South bank of Pangong Lake in Eastern Ladakh. Giving a statement in the Rajya Sabha, Mr. Singh assured that the nation’s approach and strategy for negotiations with the Chinese side has been guided at the highest level by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s resolve that India will not give even an inch of its territory. The Minister said, the tenacity and approach of the country during talks have yielded results.
Highlighting the details of the agreement, Mr. Singh informed that both sides will cease their forward deployments in a phased, coordinated and verified manner. He said, the Chinese side will keep its troop presence in the North Bank area to east of Finger-8. Reciprocally, the Indian troops, he said, will be based at their permanent base at Dhan Singh Thapa Post near Finger-3.
