China hopes for peace after military withdrawal from Indian border

Beijing, Sep 9 (Prensa Latina) China stated on Friday that the withdrawal of its troops and those of India from a conflict zone is a step toward peace and tranquility on the common border, which has been the scenario of strong tensions.

The Ministry of Defense made the statement when confirming the military withdrawal in a brief communiqué.

It added that the operation is being carried out from Thursday in a “coordinated and planned manner” and after consensus was reached in the 16th round of talks at the level of commanders of both armies.

Indian and Chinese troops began to leave the Gogra-Hotsprings area in Ladakh (Kashmir) and the measure precedes the upcoming summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in the Uzbek city of Samarkand.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will attend the meeting, and Chinese President Xi Jinping is also expected to participate, but Beijing has not yet confirmed his trip, which would be the first travel abroad in more than two years.

Both Asian powers faced new disagreements following the intense military confrontation with casualties on both sides in the Galwan valley, in the east of the Indian territory of Ladakh, on June 15, 2020.

Earlier, Chinese and Indian troops disengaged from Pangong Lake in February and the Gogra area, also in Ladakh, in August.
