    India and China have reached an agreement on disengagement in the north and south bank of Pangong Lake after nine rounds of military commander-level talks. As per the agreement, both sides will cease their forward deployments in a phased, coordinated, and verified manner.

    The Indian Army has released the first visuals of disengagement that started after reaching an agreement between the military commanders of India and China on Wednesday. A 75-second video starts with a host of military leaders from the Indian Army and People's Liberation Army (PLA) meeting and shaking hands in the Chusul Sector of the eastern Ladakh region. The clip later shows a PLA Type-99 tank move back from its forward deployment towards its permanent base as per the aforementioned agreement. After that, an Indian Army Russian-origin T-72 tank scales down from the Chushul heights.

    ​These deployments were at the Rechin La, Mukhpari, and Rezang La heights. The video shows the tanks were just 100-150 feet apart. The situation here was on a razor's edge for five months.
