India and China agree to withdraw heavy weapons from eastern Ladakh

India and China will withdraw armored vehicles, artillery and other heavy weapons from the contact line in eastern Ladakh on the basis of agreements reached. This is reported by The Times of India, citing Indian military sources.


According to the newspaper, the parties reached an agreement on the withdrawal of heavy weapons from the de facto line of control between the two countries in eastern Ladakh. The withdrawal will be carried out in three stages; at the present time, the conditions and sequence of the withdrawal of weapons are being negotiated via the hotline.

The withdrawal of weapons will take place in three stages from the Pangong Tso - Chushul region in eastern Ladakh. This will be a big step towards defusing the ongoing seven months of military tensions in this high mountain region.

- Said the Ministry of Defense of India.

It is clarified that the parties came to an agreement during the last round of bilateral talks between India and China, held on November 6.

According to the commander-in-chief of the Indian ground forces, General Manoj Narawane, the withdrawal of weapons is being prepared in accordance with political directives received after the meeting of the foreign ministers and defense ministries of India and China in September in Moscow.

Recall that in eastern Ladakh there is a line of de facto control between India and China, which replaces the border. In May and June of this year, clashes between Indian and Chinese military took place in the area, during which at least 20 Indian soldiers and about 45 Chinese soldiers were killed. After that, the parties increased the number of forces.

    What about the deployment of Russian peacekeepers? It is time to declare Moscow the capital for the settlement of territorial disputes.

      Enough of jokes in non-funny situations. Agreed - Excellent! We still lacked a vigorous war, although very many "puppeteers" want this. India and China - almost half of the population on Our mortal planet. Let them disperse in Peace.

        What kind of jokes are there: if you want war, contact Washington, if you want peace, welcome to Moscow.

      He seemed to be joking, but somehow unsuccessfully. The impression is as if you are flirting. The peacekeepers are not just picking at their noses, they are serving in a smoldering conflict. And they often die sad

      It is correct, it is much more efficient to use fittings and sticks with nails, there are fewer losses and there will be no weapons failures in high altitude conditions.

    We found the courage to step over our ambitions and at least agree on something, rather than escalate confrontation.

      Well, I agree 100%. This is the correct position. Games in a war for a piece of an icy high-mountainous plateau between nuclear powers - well, in general, an extremely dangerous development of events.

    The fact that we agreed is good. The only question is - for how long? request
