The date for the withdrawal of the armies of both the countries from the India-China border in eastern Ladakh has been fixed. Patrols of this Gogra-Hot Springs area will be removed from Point-15 by Monday. Officials having inside knowledge of the matter gave this information on Sunday. These officers said on the condition of anonymity that the armies would move from here to their old positions. Along with this, all the temporary structures built here will be dismantled.
The retreat of the forces was announced on 8 September. After this, a buffer zone of 2 to 4 km will be prepared across the border. The official said that it will be similar to what was done after the withdrawal of forces along the LAC. It is worth noting that at this Patrolling Point-15, there has been a clash between the Indian and Chinese army 28 months ago.
After this, several rounds of talks were held between the two armies. After the 16th round of talks in July, it was decided that the tension in sensitive sectors would be reduced. Another army official said that this process will be carried out in a planned manner. At the same time, retired Lieutenant General DB Shekatkar said that we have to be careful in view of the experiences with China. He said that in the last three decades, India has made many agreements with China, but it has always cheated.
