That is very hard to say because one thing is clear that neither India nor China is in a position to afford a full-fledged war. Both the economies are just about recovering and they have better things to prioritize and spend government resources on.

We also saw during the Doklam standoff in 2017 that India and China came very close to a delicate situation on the border. However, diplomacy prevailed and the entire matter got resolved amicably. That looks the most resolution to the issue and talks will have to go on.

However, it must be remembered that this time the situation may be a little more complicated. India has converted Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh into union territories and that has riled China because China claims some part of Ladakh as their own.

This time around, the standoff is likely to continue much longer looking at the way the Chinese have been trying to build reinforcements along the border and provoking India. But I would be surprised if it extends to anything beyond a border standoff.
