Chinese and Indian troops withdrawn from LAC

Both the neighboring nations amicably pulled back their respective troops simultaneously from the Ladakh's Line of Actual Control today at the Daulat Beg Oldie. This was the result of long and exhaustive discussions made diplomatically where several propositions made were worked out at the flag meeting held between the commanders of the Indian and the Chinese nations.

"Am glad behind the scenes tough negotiations worked with China rather than public bluster," RPN Singh, Minister of State in the Home Ministry, tweeted this morning.

This development indicates the end of the impasse with the Chinese troops who have invaded Indian land 19kms into Despang Valley near LAC, the de factor border. India soon moved within 500mts and set up a post bringing the invasion to a deadend.

It is not certain whether the External Affairs minister Salman Khurshid will cancel his pre-scheduled tour of China, on May 9th, as he himself was unable to “predict with certainty”. Chinese Premier Le Keqiang will also visit Delhi on May 20th.
