    The militaries of India and China have begun disengagement from the Gogra-Hotsprings border area in the high-altitude Himalayan region of Ladakh, according to a government statement issued on Thursday.

    Since May 2020, India and China have been locked in a standoff along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), a de facto border between the two countries in the disputed territory of Ladakh.

    According to the agreement reached at the 16th round of India-China commander-level meetings in July, Indian and Chinese troops in the Gogra-Hotsprings (PP-15) area began to disengage in a coordinated and planned manner on Sept. 8, according to a joint statement issued by the Indian Defense Ministry on Thursday evening.

    The move is “conducive to peace and tranquillity in border areas,” according to the statement.

    In a border conflict in June 2020, at least 20 Indian and four Chinese soldiers were killed.

    After numerous rounds of negotiations between the two sides, tensions along the border decreased.
