NEW DELHI: India’s foreign ministry said on Monday it had agreed with China to an “expeditious disengagement” of troops at a disputed border area where soldiers from the two countries have been in a stand-off for more than two months, reported Reuters.

“In recent weeks, India and China have maintained diplomatic communication in respect of the incident at Doklam,” India’s Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement, referring to the area in the Himalayas close to the borders of China, India and Bhutan. “On this basis, expeditious disengagement of border personnel at the face-off site at Doklam has been agreed to and is on-going.”
