The India-China disengagement process is expected to be completed in the next few days as is taking time because it is not so easy to dismantle the bunkers and the gun positions which were there at Finger 7 and different parts of the south bank of Pangong Tso.

Around 20,000 troops were deployed in the area while air defence systems were in place near the areas around Pangong Tso.

Meanwhile, India and China are likely to hold the 10th round of talks after the ongoing disengagement. The next round of talks will be focused on withdrawing troops and military equipment from Despang and other areas, a report stated.
