Sources have come forward and told us that Chinese troops have pulled back their presence in the Galwan valley by about 1.5 kilometres. Despite the 1.5 kilometre claim, the actual distance of their withdrawal remains a mystery and it could also be 2 kilometres. This comes just a few days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid a visit to Ladakh where he met injured soldiers. The report also states that Indian soldiers have pulled back and a buffer zone has been created between the troops of both sides.

The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has apparently withdrawn its presence from Patrolling Point 14 (PP-14) in the Galwan valley. Sources are also telling us that the general areas of Hot Springs and Gogra have seen less movement from the Chinese troops, meaning the deployment of forces has dropped. Tensions between India and China had escalated on June 15 when a clash between troops of both the countries had erupted in the Galwan valley, leaving 20 soldiers dead on the Indian side.
