NEW DELHI: There may be an end in sight to the Doklam standoff indicated the external affairs ministry (MEA) on Monday as it announced that both Indian and Chinese troops are slowly being pulled out from the face-off site.
“…expeditious disengagement of border personnel at the face-off site at Doklam has been agreed to and is on-going,” said a statement from the ministry.
The MEA is calling this process the ‘Doklam Disengagement Understanding’ and it comes after weeks of sustained diplomacy.
The move comes ahead of the Brics summit, which will be attended by leaders from five countries, including PM Narendra Modi, in the Chinese city of Xiamen in early September.
