Talks between India and China to restore the status quo ante - meaning getting soldiers of the People's Liberation Army to move back from the places where they intruded - at the Line of Actual Control have remained inconclusive, sources have said. Speaking to NDTV, former Indian ambassador to China Gautam Bambawale said that the Chinese are "not showing any inclination whatsoever to disengage or to deescalate". On being asked whether he foresees a military clash, Mr Bambawale said, "We cannot write it off entirely. We must be prepared for the worst, and I think our planners and our armed authorities, our armed forces, our government, and our people should also be ready for this kind of possibility in the coming weeks and in the coming months. I would say that the probability is low, but it is not zero."
