The Hindu reported on Thursday that both sides are working out modalities to finalise a plan for phased disengagement and de-escalation along the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh, beginning with the North Bank of Pangong Tso. Multiple sources had confirmed that the proposal from the Chinese side put forward during the talks on November 6 includes pulling back their troops and equipment from Finger 4 to Finger 8 on the North Bank.

Chinese official media, however, denied on Thursday that such a “disengagement plan” is being discussed. Global Times termed the reports “inaccurate.”
