Indian drone violated airspace, crashed, claims Chinese media

India India-pakistan RIC meet Russia India China meeting India Russia terrorism JeM LeT Sushma Swaraj

The Defence Ministry statement meanwhile said UAV was on a regular training mission inside Indian territory when it lost contact with the ground control due to some technical problem and crossed over the LAC. China claims an Indian drone that crashlanded violated its airspace.

"As per standard protocol, the Indian border security personnel immediately alerted their Chinese counterparts to locate the UAV", Colonel Aman Anand, the Indian Army's spokesman said. The source said the drone had gone missing earlier this week, but the exact date of the incident was not revealed.

The matter is being dealt with in accordance with established protocols and through institutional mechanisms that exist for similar situations in the India- China border areas, the statement added. "India's move has infringed upon China's territorial sovereignty, and we are strongly dissatisfied with and opposed to this", Xinhua quoted Zhang Shuili, deputy head of the combat bureau of the Western Theater Command's joint staff department, as saying.

In September, BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) summit had, for the first time, named Pakistan- based terror groups LeT, JeM and the Haqqani network in its declaration, which was seen as a major diplomatic victory for India.

Geng did not specify when the drone crashed, but said it had occurred "recently".


"The two top diplomats are expected to sum up the results of the Russian-Chinese strategic cooperation in the outgoing year and exchange views on the RIC (the Russia-India-China format - TASS) issues and some other pressing worldwide issues", she said.

There has been no immediate response to the Chinese allegation from India. The Chinese military's claim came months after India and China were locked in a standoff in the Dokalam sector after the Chinese troops began constructing a road near the Bhutan trijunction.

The Indian Army uses the Heron drones to monitor the real-time movement of the Chinese People's Liberation Army.

"The 15th meeting of the Russian, Indian and Chinese foreign ministers will take place in New Delhi on December 11".

"According to our information, Wang will meet with the top officials of India and detailed information will be released in due course", Geng said. There are no new developments at the face-off site and its vicinity since the August 28 disengagement.
