(CNN)China has withdrawn troops, dismantled infrastructure and vacated camps along its disputed border with India, according to new satellite images -- just a week after both countries agreed to a mutual disengagement.

The agreement was reached at a ninth round of talks between the two sides, which have been ongoing since a deadly clash between Indian and Chinese troops at the border last June.

Under the "mutual and reciprocal" disengagement terms, China will maintain troops in the north bank area to the east of a deployment known as Finger 8, while Indian troops will maintain a permanent base near a deployment known as Finger 3, said Defense Minister Singh.

Pangong Tso, located some 14,000 feet (4,267 meters) above sea level, spans an area stretching from the Indian territory of Ladakh to Chinese-controlled Tibet, in the greater Kashmir region where India, China and Pakistan all claim territory.

The latest round of talks, which led to the agreement to disengage, came after the Indian Army said there was a "minor" face-off between Indian soldiers and China's PLA near the border last month.
