KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): New Delhi and Beijing have begun a long process of disengagement in Ladakh, as Indian National Security Advisor Ajit Doval spoke to Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

Doval and Wang Yi agreed it was “necessary to ensure at the earliest a complete disengagement of troops along the LAC” and de-escalation in border areas for full restoration of peace and tranquility.

Asked whether China had withdrawn troops from Galwan Valley, the Foreign Ministry spokesperson said the two sides had agreed on the disengagement of frontline soldiers.

“We hope the two sides could meet each other halfway in implementing these agreements,” Zhao told a press briefing in Beijing on Monday.

The Global Times said the current diplomatic and military talks between China and India were aimed to prevent the situation from further deteriorating.

The two sides had reached consensus on defusing the tensions, the media outlet quoted Qian Feng, director of the research department of the National Strategy Institute at Tsinghua University, as saying.
