NEW DELHI- India is in no mood to make the first move to de-escalate border tension with cross-border firing that began over two weeks ago continuing intermittently, Indian media quoted top government sources as saying.

In fact, the present strategy is to return Pakistani fire aggressively instead of considering any resumption of talks with Pakistan any time soon, it is learnt. Bilateral dialogue with Pakistan looks distant at the moment, said the sources, with New Delhi putting the blame on Islamabad for not allowing the atmospherics to be created for talks, by its continuous violation of the ceasefire.
