In a significant development, the Chinese army has withdrawn about 10,000 soldiers from their interior areas near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh.
However, the deployment in the forward areas remains intact. And in many areas of this sector, soldiers on both sides are engaged face to face. Government sources said that the Chinese army has withdrawn about 10,000 soldiers from their traditional training areas in front of the East Ladakh sector and its surrounding areas.
The traditional training area of China is about 150 km away from the Indian side of the LAC. China retained these soldiers from April to May last year Sources say that heavy weapons deployed by China near the Indian border have been retained in the area.
He says that the reason for the withdrawal of troops from the interior areas may be the cold and they may have difficulty in keeping large numbers of soldiers stationed in this very cold region. It is difficult to say whether they will bring these soldiers back when the temperature rises in February-March.
