The Chinese army has withdrawn 10,000 soldiers from the interior of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh. Official sources said Monday that China has withdrawn about 10,000 troops from its traditional training areas on the other side in the eastern Ladakh sector. However, on several fronts in the front line areas of LAC, soldiers from both India and China are stationed face to face. Meanwhile, India has returned a Chinese soldier caught on LAC three days ago.
Deployment was increased from April to May
It may be known that from April last year in East Ladakh, China had increased its troops on LAC. Sensing the aggressive attitude of China, India also deployed a large number of its troops as a precaution. The two countries continued to negotiate to end the deadlock over the LAC. In the talks, China used to talk about withdrawing its troops but does not follow it. Now the matter of recalling troops from China has come once again.
Deployment of heavy weapons remains intact
However, sources also say that heavy arms deployment on LAC from China still persists. Sources say that extreme winters could also be a reason for the removal of troops from the deep areas on the LAC. Deploying large numbers of troops in extremely cold areas is a big challenge. However, it is difficult to say if there will be a rise in temperature in the month of February-March, then whether China will again deploy its troops on LAC or not… It is difficult to believe in China so soon.
Talks continue in both countries

Not only this, the Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Senior Colonel Tan Kefei had said that India and China on the ninth round of Commander level meeting on the issue of withdrawal of troops from LAC.
