China says Indian drone invaded its airspace, crashed

Beijing, Dec 7 An Indian drone has recently "intruded" into China's airspace and crashed, the Chinese military said today, asserting that the incident infringed upon the territorial sovereignty of the country. However, the report didn't specify when and where the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) had entered into China's airspace and what kind of markings the drone had. He did not give an exact location.

Contentious issues like China's repeated blocking of listing of JeM chief Masood Azhar, Chinese military continuing to keep large troops presence near the site of Doklam standoff even during winter as well as United States dollars 50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor were expected to figure in the talks.

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

However, there was no immediate response from the Indian Defence Ministry.

China and Bhutan have competing claims on the plateau, and India supports Bhutan's claim.

Hammerson to take over Intu
If the proposed deal goes ahead, Intu's shareholders will receive 0.475 shares in the new business for each of their Intu shares. According to BBC News, the takeover will create the UK's largest property company with a value of £21bn.

The statement also holds significance ahead of Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's December 11 visit to India.

The two sides agreed to an "expeditious disengagement" of troops there about a week before Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met in an effort to mend ties at a summit hosted by China in September.

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

It is expected to be followed by the 20th round of India-China boundary talks in New Delhi between Chinese State Councillor Yang Jiechi and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, who are the designated Special Representatives.
