In February, the two sides completed the withdrawal of troops and arms from the northern and southern banks of Pangong Lake as agreed. Earlier, the 12th round of talks between India and China was held on 31 July. A few days later, the armies of both the countries completed the withdrawal of their troops from Gogra and it was considered as a major and significant step towards the restoration of peace and stability in the region. At present, around 50,000 to 60,000 soldiers from each side are deployed in the sensitive area along the LAC.
