With the withdrawal of tanks completed from the forward areas on the south bank of Pangong Tso, India and China have started pulling back troops in large numbers from both the north and south banks, while also restoring the land that was dug up during the heavy build-up of defenses during the stand-off last year.
Videos released by the Indian Army show PLA troops dismantling tents and bunkers and moving equipment in vehicles. Infantry troops could be seen moving out on foot as well as long convoys of vehicles with stores and troops as part of the disengagement agreement.
