China says Indian drone violated its airspace, crashed

Ministry of Defense has given a reply regarding this issue saying that it was because there was a loss of signal and the contact from the ground control was lost. Sources said India will, through diplomatic channels, seek its return.

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 stand-off put a new strain between India-China ties.

Tensions between China and India at their disputed border have been reignited-over a crashed drone. "The Chinese border troops took professional and responsible attitude and verified the device".

"China demands that India immediately stop the border fringe activities of the aircraft and work with China to maintain peace and stability", Geng Shuang added. "China is dissatisfied with this and lodged a solemn representation with the Indian side", he said.

But we'll have to have a performance similar to get us a result. "I am happy having the two of them". But tactically I think we need to be slightly different to give us a chance.

Zhang said that Chinese border troops "have conducted identification and verification over the vehicle". "We will. defend China's national sovereignty and security resolutely", he said. "If a Chinese drone flew into Indian territory due to a technical failure, would India accept an explanation that such an incident was a mere accident?" the editorial asked. The source said the drone had gone missing earlier this week, but the exact date of the incident was not revealed.

The Chinese side got back with the location details of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, the Defence Ministry said.

"I want to point out that the Sikkim section of the China India border has been delimited", he said, in an apparent reference to the 1890 China-British Treaty.

The trips by Foreign Minister Wang Yi and State Councillor Yang Jiechi - more than three months after the worst border row between the two countries in almost three decades - showed that both Beijing and New Delhi meant to get ties back on track, observers said.
