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.
"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."
