India, China to engage in dialogue on Monday to resolve border row

India and China will sit down for the seventh round of military talks on Monday in another attempt to work out steps to preserve an uneasy truce amid unprecedented tensions on the border between the two countries.

According to analysts, expectations of a “breakthrough” were low with doubts over what could constitute a “breakthrough in the current circumstances, seen as a state of unprecedented tensions in decades. The thinking in some quarters was that a “breakthrough” would mean a restoration of status quo ante – ie China vacate the areas the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) intruded into in May. Another view in New Delhi was that a restoration of status quo would mean India move back from some strategic positions it had taken in Ladakh on the banks of the Pangoing Tso lake surprising the Chinese.
