Army sources tell OneIndia that the withdrawal is at those points where the disengagement was agreed upon during the three rounds of military commander level talks held between the two sides.

While this is a welcome move, the Indian Army continues to maintain caution and is monitoring the situation closely. The source cited above said that the Chinese heavy armoured vehicles are still present in the depth areas of the Galwan River.

The source also said that at present there are reports of disengagement only at the Galwan Valley. This has been taking place in the past 24 hours. India is, however, maintaining caution and would assess the move to see if it is genuine and would be lasting.

On the Indian troops pulling back, the source said that it is being done without giving up any territorial claim. This is being done only to separating the two armies and also create a sense of confidence as the disengagement takes place.

The disengagement will involve rival troops pulling back around 100 metres from the face-off sites. The further retreats would take place in phases.

It may be recalled that 20 Indian soldiers were martyred when a violent brawl erupted at the Galwan Valley on June 15. Around 30 soldiers of the PLA were either killed or injured in the incident. The military commanders of both sides have held three rounds of talks.

    On Friday, Prime Minister, Narendra Modi had visited Ladakh. He had addressed the troops and without naming China had asserted that the era of expansionism is over.
