  • The incident comes to light days before Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi’s visit to Delhi to attend the Russia-India-China trilateral meeting on December 11

"The intrusion took place at the same location where a standoff broke off not too long ago between the Chinese and Indian militaries". Sources said India will, through diplomatic channels, seek its return.

The incident comes just days ahead of Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's visit to India for the December 11 meeting of Russia-India-China foreign ministers.

The incident comes three months after India and China chose to pull their troops back after a 72-day stand-off on Doklam, which falls in the Sikkim section of the border.

The dispute between the two countries started in June this year, when India said that it is against the attempts of China to lengthen a road on the Doklam/Donglang plateau, at the border of China, India and Bhutan.

He said the Chinese border troops had taken a "professional and responsible attitude" to verify the device.

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

"Unless it is done, troops on both sides will continue to patrol the area as per their own perception of the LAC, which clashes with the other's perception, leading to claims and counterclaims of transgressions and, quite frequently, stand-offs", he said.

Zhang said that Chinese border troops "have conducted identification and verification over the vehicle". "India's move has infringed upon China's territorial sovereignty, and we are strongly dissatisfied with and opposed to this", Zhang was quoted as saying by the state-run Xinhua news agency. "We will. defend China's national sovereignty and security resolutely", he said.

Indeed, China appears to have monitored India with drones in the Himalayas for many years. According to the reports, the drone has crossed the LoC at Sikkim. The source said the drone went missing earlier this week, but the exact date of the incident was not revealed.

India, for its part, said the drone was on a regular training mission over its territory but had lost contact with ground control due to a technical failure.

He said further details can be obtained from the Chinese military.

Much of the 3,500-kilometer (2,174-mile) border between China and India is contested.

Wang will attend a trilateral meeting with his counterparts from India and Russian Federation in Delhi on Monday to discuss "major worldwide and regional issues of common interest and trilateral practical cooperation".
