Pangong Tso Disengagement Ends In Next 24 Hours, China Receding at ‘Surprising’ Speed

Fast-tracking disturbances along India along the banks of Pangong Lake in eastern Ladakh, 200 Chinese tanks have moved more than 100 kilometers in a span of just eight hours. The PLA has destroyed its jetties, helipads, tents and observation points and was built between Finger 4 and Finger 8 after April 2020.

134 km of the northern shore of Pangong Lake extends like a palm, and various extensions are identified as “fingers” to demarcate the area.

Top government officials told CNN-News18 on the condition of anonymity, “Seeing this, the speed of surprise has increased.”

Typical images accessed by CNN-News18 show the removal of tanks from Chinese troops and the shores of Pangong Tso, where they had been deployed opposite India for almost ten months.

Pictures and videos also reveal that the Chinese military used cranes to build as part of their military exercises as well as trucks that had brought back their infantry in the last 10 months.

The dismantling of all structures built after April 2020 – when Chinese aggression in Ladakh created a deadlock at the border – was one of the conditions in the disintegration process, which was initiated in the southern and northern banks of Pangong Tso last week.

Speaking about the impact of this long deadlock, political analyst Pathikit Payne said, “Disintegration is happening but mistrust with China will remain rock solid.”

The agreement by the two countries, which led to the dissolution on 10 February, specifies that China will begin moving its troops to Finger 8 and India will return to Finger 3. Bharat Dhan Singh will maintain his troops in the Thapa administration camp. .

Government sources had earlier told CNN-News18 that the first phase would be completed in 15-20 days. He said that the strategic height that India occupies in South India will be empty at this stage.

India is closely monitoring the divestment process in the Northern Bank. The verification process is going on through unmanned aerial vehicles and satellites.

A senior official told CNN-News18, “There is an agreement. There will be a mutual verification at every step. The inconsistency will once again be seen in the Kailash range.”

Displacement of tanks and armored vehicles in the South Bank was completed by last week; There were over 100 tanks on either side.

The 10th Corps Commander will meet 48 hours after the displacement is completed in Pangong Tso. Sources said this is when other friction points such as Depsang and Gogra Hotspering and Demchok will be discussed.

Till next, there is dissatisfaction at other friction points employed: Gogra, Hotspring, Depsang and Demchok. In Galwa, a 1.5-km buffer zone between the two armies has helped maintain peace after a bloody conflict that left 20 Indian soldiers and at least 48 Chinese soldiers killed on June 15, 2020.

Lieutenant General (Retd) Vinod Bhatia said, “There should be no doubt that it is a fight, but the war continues.”
