India-China agree to pull out forces ending the Doklam stand-off
In a latest development, the Ministry of External Affairs on Monday confirmed in its official press statement on 'Doklam Disengagement Understanding' that India and China have agreed to pull back their forces from Doklam.

In the statement, the Ministry said that in recent weeks, India and China have maintained diplomatic communication on Doklam. According to the statement: "India and China agree to expeditious disengagement of border personnel at faceoff site in Doklam."

This news comes days ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to attend the ninth annual BRICS summit 2017, which will be held in Xiamen, China from September 3 to 5.

India and China had been facing conflict at the India-Bhutan-China tri-junction in Doklam area for over two months after the Indian forces stopped the Chinese troops from constructing a road near Doklam. Since then, both Asian countries had been engaged in a face-off over the issue.
