Indian drone entered Chinese airspace due to tech fault: MoD

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

Responding to China's statement that over a drone crashing into Chinese territory, the Ministry of Defence on Thursday issued a statement where they admitted to the incident taking place.

The two countries saw relations worsen this summer when they became locked in a dispute over a Himalayan plateau.

Indian border guards alerted their Chinese counterparts about the drone soon afterwards, an Indian army spokesman said. "Matter being dealt with in accordance with established protocols", it added.

"China's border defence forces took a professional and responsible attitude in conducting an inspection of the device", Zhang said, adding that the military would resolutely defend national sovereignty and security.

The 73-day stand-off ended in August with troops of both nations pulling back their troops from the disputed territory claimed by both Bhutan and China.




China claimed Indian drone had "intruded" its airspace.

The standoff began in mid-June after Chinese troops started building a road on the remote Doka La plateau. India had objected to the construction highlighting its security concerns.

The foreign ministers of Russian Federation and China will visit India on December 11 for the much-delayed trilateral meeting, which is expected to review global and regional issues of mutual interest.

From India to Vietnam, Singapore, South Korea and the South China Sea, China is recalibrating neighbourhood policy during Xi s second tenure, Wang Xiangwei, former Chief-Editor of Hong Kong-based South China Morning post, said.

"China asks India to immediately stop its activities of using unmanned aircraft near the border, and to work alongside China to maintain the border area's peace and tranquillity", he said.
