India-China border situation: Indian and Chinese troops in the area of Gogra-Hot Springs PP-15 have started to disengage in a coordinated and planned way, a joint statement said on Thursday.

"Today, as per consensus reached in 16th round of India China Corps Commander Level Meeting, Indian & Chinese troops in area of Gogra-Hotsprings (PP-15) have begun to disengage in a coordinated & planned way, which is conducive to peace & tranquility in the border areas," Defence Ministry said.

The announcement of the disengagement process comes around a week ahead of the annual summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) in Uzbekistan which is set to be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
