China says Indian drone violated its airspace, crashed

"India's move has infringed upon China's territorial sovereignty and we are strongly dissatisfied with and opposed to this".

After weeks of escalating tensions, including heated rhetoric from both sides, the stand-off ended in August when both countries pulled back their troops.

An Indian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) did cross the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and entered Chinese airspace in the Sikkim sector, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said, confirming a Chinese military claim made earlier today.

"We will fulfil our mission and responsibility and defend China's national sovereignty and security resolutely", he said.

The standoff began in mid-June after Chinese troops started building a road on the remote Doka La plateau.

The External Affairs Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday that Wang, along with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov would attend the meeting on December 11 to be hosted by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.


The diplomat added that the parties would discuss coordination of efforts within the UN, BRICS (that involves Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), the G20, the East Asia Summit (EAS) and the ASEAN Regional Security Forum.

A Chinese military official, speaking to official news agency Xinhua, did not say that Indian border troops had contacted their Chinese counterparts about the incident and instead struck a more strident note.

This will be the first visit by a top Chinese official to India after the Dokalam crisis and commencement of second five-year term after Chinese President Xi Jinping.

"India just wants to incite the USA to cooperate with India on containing China", said Hu.

In September, India's army chief General Bipin Rawat had said that India could not afford to be complacent and must be prepared for war.
