According to Indian Army sources, the Chinese troops have pulled back by over two kilometres from the area where they had illegally perched in the Galwan valley.
 
The illegal and forceful occupation of the points in the Galwan valley had led to the fight between Indian soldiers and Chinese occupiers resulting in the martyrdom of 20 India soldiers and at least 44 Chinese troops last month.
 
Army sources say that the Chinese have moved back their tents, vehicles, troops and equipments by over two kilometres towards the LAC as per the mutual agreement. The agreement was reached at the Corps Commander-level talks.
 
Sources say that talks between the commanders will continue if required. However, the Indian Army is on strict vigil to avoid any repeated misadventure by the Chinese forces.
