China protests, India says UAV entered its airspace due to snag

China protests, India says UAV entered its airspace due to snag

It also claimed that "as per standard protocol, the Indian border security personnel immediately alerted their Chinese counterparts to locate the UAV".

India on Thursday clarified on reports of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) entering China's territory, saying that the UAV had crossed over the border in the Sikkim sector after losing contact with the ground control due to a technical problem.

"India's move has infringed upon China's territorial sovereignty and we are strongly dissatisfied with and opposed to this".

The clarification came in the wake of China's Defence Ministry accusing India of violating its airspace.

The date of the crash and exact location of the drone, however, have not been revealed by either India or China.

"I want to point out that the Sikkim section of China-Indian border has been delineated".

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti declared a state of emergency while 11 Los Angeles Unified schools canceled Wednesday classes. Forecasters are calling for another afternoon of gusty winds, which will help fuel the fires on Wednesday.

Beijing often referred to the 1890 Britain-China treaty during the lengthy Doklam stand-off, stating that it has defined the Sikkim section of the boundary with Tibet, therefore the border in that area has been settled.

"China's border defense forces took a professional and responsible attitude in conducting an inspection of the device", Zhang said, adding that the military would "resolutely defend" China's sovereignty and security. In 2013, India voiced suspicions of Chinese drone activities, which Beijing denied, in the border area. For more than two months which was filled with heated rhetoric, China and India were locked in a tense standoff in a border area known as Doklam and it only ended when there was high-level intervention in August.

Army spokesperson Col Aman Anand said the incident was being investigated.

The incident comes to light ahead of Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's visit to attend the Russia-India-China trilateral meeting here.

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.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said the country has lodged a diplomatic protest to India over the drone violating Chinese sovereignty.
