China Claims Indian Drone "Invaded Airspace in Crash"

China Claims Indian Drone

The Indian side further clarified that "as per standard protocol, the Indian border security personnel immediately alerted their Chinese counterparts to locate the UAV".

While Indian officials declined to provide more information on the UAV including the timing of the incident, the episode assumes significance in the backdrop of the 73-day-long standoff at Doklam, near the tri-junction between India's Sikkim, China and Bhutan that ended in August-end. Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang, however, said the country has lodged a diplomatic protest with India over the drone violating their sovereignty.

The Indian army said an unmanned aerial vehicle was on a training mission over Indian territory when it developed technical problems and crossed a so-called line of actual control separating the countries' militaries.

"I want to point out that the Sikkim section of China-Indian border has been delineated". They have also had ongoing disputes over sovereignty in other border areas, notably Aksai Chin, a Himalayan region that straddles their territorial demarcation in the west.

"We will fulfil our mission and responsibility and defend China's national sovereignty and security resolutely". In 2013, India voiced suspicions of Chinese drone activities, which Beijing denied, in the border area.

After the weeks of confrontation on the wind-swept Doklam plateau this year, the two sides agreed to an "expeditious disengagement" of troops about a week before Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met in an effort to mend ties at a summit in China in September. "The matter is being dealt with in accordance with the established protocols through institutional mechanisms to deal with situations along the Indo-China border areas", a Ministry of Defence statement read.

Sources in New Delhi said the incident happened around 10 days ago, reports PTI.

The UAV incident comes ahead of a trilateral meeting between the foreign ministers of India, China, and Russian Federation next week in New Delhi. Indian army spokesperson Colonel Aman Anand told reporters that they had lost control of the drone which then crossed into Chinese airspace. Wang will arrive in India Dec. 10.
