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.

An Indian drone has "invaded China's airspace and crashed" on its territory, Chinese state media said. "We strongly express our dissatisfaction and opposition", deputy director of the army's western theatre combat bureau, Zhang Shuili, said in a statement. He did not give an exact location.

Chinese military's western theatre command jurisdiction covers nearly all of the 3488-km LAC, including Tibet's border region with India and the Ladakh region.

While India and Bhutan said that it violated the status quo along the India-Bhutan-China worldwide trijunction, Beijing claimed that it was China's territory.

"We will earnestly fulfil our mission of duty and firmly defend the sovereignty and security of our country", he added.

However, there was no immediate response from the Indian Defence Ministry.


Indian and Chinese troops confronted each other between June and August this year - at one stage even resorting to scuffling and throwing stones - on a remote plateau near the borders of India, its ally Bhutan, and China, in the most serious and prolonged standoff in decades.

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.

Last week, the PLA said it had the right to deploy troops as it saw fit in Doklam, which China claims but India and Bhutan see as Bhutanese.

Wang will take part in the RIC Foreign Ministers' meeting on December 11, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told media briefing here today.

Wang's visit is regarded significant as it is first by a top Chinese official to India after the Doklam standoff which strained ties between the two neighbours.
