6:05 pm
deescalate and neither china nor india want to have a war between the 2 largest populations in the world a war will be detrimental to both countries and i think the top priority is to negotiate a peaceful settlement of the border conflict between the 2 countries. joining us now from delhi is harsh pant he's a security strategist and the director of the observer research foundation for his apparent china says both sides need to deescalate and they have no interest in conflict what does india. well pretty much the same thing but i think you know there is a real. concern in india about the way this crisis created and the way so we just didn't care where the casualties have happened on the border now in decades for the 1st time casualties have happened this used to be
