India, China to pull back troops from border standoff
NEW DELHI (AP) － India and China have agreed to pull back their troops from a face‐off in the Doklam plateau in the Himalayas where China, India and Bhutan meet, indicating a thaw in the monthslong standoff, India's government said on Aug. 28.
India's government said India and China had diplomatic exchanges in recent weeks over the situation and both had agreed to "go back to the status quo" before the standoff.
In Beijing, foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters that Chinese forces in the area had verified the Indian pullout and that China will "continue to exercise its sovereignty and uphold its territorial integrity."
The confrontation, which began in June when Indian troops moved in to stop China from constructing a road in the Doklam region, was the worst in decades.
Doklam is claimed by Bhutan, but the Chinese government says it belongs to China. The area is near a narrow corridor that links mainland India with its remote northeastern states.
