The withdrawal of Chinese and Indian troops from East Ladakh in the Pangong Lake area is proceeding at an active pace. This process is expected to be completed in the coming week.


This was reported by The Hindu newspaper, citing a government source.

During this time, the parties will have to carry out serious work, because they will need to transport all equipment, equipment, ammunition and much more to a new location, as well as dismantle all structures and structures in the area of ​​the contact line.

India TV is a little less optimistic, believing that the withdrawal of troops will be completed in 10-15 days.

The Indian TV channel WION reports that China has begun an active withdrawal of troops from Lake Pangong on the border with India. As of February 16, 150 were withdrawn from there tanks and up to 5 thousand soldiers of the People's Liberation Army of China.

Within two days from the moment of the complete disengagement of forces, the Indian-Chinese negotiations of the military leadership will take place, where plans for a bilateral withdrawal of troops in other regions of East Ladakh will be discussed.

The aggravation of the armed conflict between India and China occurred in May last year and has been going on for about nine months. Both sides accuse each other of provocations.

    For the PLA, even moving troops in high altitude conditions is already a good exercise ... How quickly they left ... so they will return even more rapidly ...

      Do you know who is to blame for this border conflict between the two nuclear powers? Correctly! Anglo-Saxons! The conflict dates back to 1914, when the administration of British India imposed an agreement on a weakened China on the border between its dominions and the then virtually independent Tibet. The Chinese delegates invited to the talks could not really influence the situation. Anglo-Saxon, head of the colonial administration G. McMahon drew a line of demarcation between Tibet and India, which he named after himself, but China never officially recognized it! A little later, after the entry of Tibet into China, the Indians, and in particular D. Nehru, who was faithful to the principles of the struggle against colonialism, recognized China's right to Tibet, but the question of revising the borders is still hanging and hanging!

        The main thing is that they finally agreed to scatter.
        India, in an alliance with the United States, is not needed by us or China. hi

    And this, by the way, is a splash for the United States, India decided to reduce the degree of confrontation with China, which is very much not to the liking of Penguinstan, who is actually at war with China. While they are fighting economically.

      Yes, and China, given the aggravated relations with the United States, this conflict is unnecessary, with the country as its size and also nuclear.
      At the same time, the Indians also reduce the degree of dependence on the United States in military procurement - preferences in the procurement of combat aircraft are again given to Russia (MiG-29K \ KUB, MiG-35, interest in the Su-57 and plans to modernize the entire Su-30 fleet to the level of Su- 35).
      And China is now freeing its hands to confront the United States and its allies.

    And what do they share there, on this pass? There are mountains all around, and not a fig. You cannot even use these places as a springboard for further expansion, in view of the awful possibility of supplying a more or less decent grouping. Anyway, the war for the Himalayas looks like some kind of surreptitiousness. On feijoa they surrendered, then? To me, too, is the key point of the planet .. They are all toying with frank foolishness there ..

      If we set aside its important geographical position, then
      The Indus River, which flows in the Ladakh region, has enormous hydropower potential. The potentials of solar and wind energy are also significant. The region is rich in limestone deposits for the production of cement from local cheap electricity for various construction needs. https://ru.qaz.wiki/wiki/Ladakh

      There are plateaus and roads, which are most important in the local conditions.

      Only there it is possible to build a road from China to Pakistan.
      China wants this very much.
      And India really doesn't want to. hi

        The Karakorum highway from China to Pakistan was laid about half a century ago. Construction began in 1959. The road is constantly being modernized and it is even considered the 8th wonder of the world. It is convenient to build a road from China to India through Ladakh. But India is afraid of cheap goods from China entering Nepal via Chinese roads.

          The Karakorum Highway is a 1300-kilometer high-mountain road that crosses the Karakorum through the Khunjerab Pass at an altitude of 4693 m.

          In winter, because of the danger of avalanches, traffic on the Karakorum highway is closed.

          This is exotic that cannot really be used.
          4700 m above sea level! Have you ever been at what altitude?
          Neither technology works, nor people can breathe normally.
          Elbrus is only 1 km higher. wink

            Delivering goods to Norilsk or Kolyma is no easier at all. There was a case when a flotilla of submarines had to spend the winter in Kolyma. And the roads from Russia to Georgia or South Ossetia are regularly blocked in winter due to weather conditions ..

              There are different cases.
              70% of the States are now covered with snow.
              And all would be fine, if you do not pay attention to what latitude the States are.
              New York is the latitude of Batumi. Florida is at the latitude of the Sahara. hi

    4.7 km is of course a sensitive height, but such a high section is very short, the main road is much lower.
    I lived at an altitude of 2 km. Absolutely no discomfort until you go down.

      I also often visited 2000. I was born and lived at 900.
      At 3500, there was already not enough air.
      And swimming in the lake for 2000 is a separate topic.
