India and China have started withdrawing troops from the disputed border area in the northern region of Ladakh.

 

Sources surrounding the Indian government say that the agreements made in consultation between senior military personnel from the countries are being implemented.

At least twenty Indian soldiers were killed in fighting with Chinese troops in Ladakh last month.

It is unclear how many victims have been killed on the Chinese side, but according to Indian sources, it is at least forty deaths.

The bloody confrontation, where no shot would have been fired, increased tension between neighbouring countries.

Indian news channel NDTV reports that a buffer zone has now been set up between the troops in the border area.

The Chinese would have retreated at least a kilometre into the Galwan Valley, and the army of India is also moving further away.
