An Indian drone has “invaded” China's airspace and crashed, China's defence ministry said today, months after the neighbours ended one of their worst border standoffs in decades.

“The Indian move violated China's territorial sovereignty. We strongly express our dissatisfaction and opposition,” deputy director of the army's western theatre combat bureau, Zhang Shuili, said in a statement.

Zhang did not give details about when or where the incident happened.

Chinese border troops “took a professional and responsible attitude” and carried out identification verification of the device, Zhang said.

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

The Indian embassy in Beijing declined to comment.
