China claims Indian drone invaded airspace, New Delhi says Beijing was informed

Indian drone crashes after entering Chinese airspace

China accused India that one of its drone violated the Chinese airspace.

India is likely to push for naming Pakistan-based terror groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e- Mohammed in the communique to be adopted at the Russia-India- China (RIC) trilateral meeting here on Monday, citing a similar move by the BRICS grouping.

And it looks like the defence officials are aware of these China-Pakistan-made bunkers as sources told India Today that Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has already visited these areas quite a few times to study the situation and see how prepared the forces are to handle an emergency.

China's state-run Xinhua news agency reported that members of the People's Liberation Army retrieve the drone from an undisclosed location.

"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", Shuang said, quoted in Reuters.

Indian and Chinese troops were in a face-to-face situation near the Sikkim sector of the global border after the Chinese People's Liberation Army tried to build a road in Doklam in mid-June. "We will fulfil our mission and responsibility and defend China's national sovereignty and security resolutely", Zhang said.

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.

"According to our information, Wang will meet with the top officials of India and detailed information will be released in due course", Geng said.

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

Though India may raise the contentious issues, it will highlight the need for joining hands by the three countries to pursue common strategic interests in the region, it is learnt.

Wang's visit to Delhi is regarded significant as it would set tone for President Xi Jinping's policy approach to India in his second term as the head of the ruling Communist Party of China. The road was being built by the Chinese troops in the area also claimed by Bhutan.

"We have seen recent reports on Doklam".
