The statement did not immediately make clear whether the disengagement is being done by the both countries, or that MEA is speaking for India only and disengagement is by the Indian side only. "We're not only negotiating over Doklam, but discussing bilateral relations with China as well", India's foreign minister Sushma Swaraj said in parliament on August 03.
Retweets and comments of Indians and Chinese general public people apparently states this verdict is healthy for both the countries.
China and Indian authorities have agreed to bring to an end a prolong stand-off at the Sikkim border that began in June, Indian government said Monday.
However, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying confirmed "India's withdrawal of personnel and equipment which was crossing the border" from the contented area in Doklam.
A separate Chinese attempt to build a road in the Doklam area-which is disputed between China and Bhutan-has prompted a standoff between hundreds of Indian and Chinese soldiers which has lasted for more than two months.More news: Spanish attacks death toll rises to 16 after woman dies in hospital

The decision comes in the run-up to a summit of the BRICS nations - a grouping that also includes Brazil, Russia and South Africa - in China early next month, which Narendra Modi, India's prime minister, is expected to attend.
China claims some 90,000 square kilometers (35,000 square miles) of territory in India's northeast and cites the region's cultural affinity with Tibet as evidence that the area is part of what it calls "southern" Tibet. The Ministry said, during the diplomatic exchanges, India was able to express its views, concerns and interests. "The Chinese statement indicates that the status-quo will be restored", a government source said.
Asked if the disengagement was from both sides, Hua repeated the same statement. A spokesperson said China would "continue to safeguard its sovereignty based on the historical border".
Asked what she meant, she did not elaborate. "Our principled position is that agreements and understandings reached on boundary issues must be scrupulously respected".
The Doklam standoff has officially come to an end. The Chinese side, especially the state media, since then had been on an offensive, and on occasions issued veiled threats of war.
DD News termed development as "victory" and "vindication" of Indian stance. India said both sides should withdraw their forces together. The stage for the back channel talks was however set during the visit by National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval.
