"We express strong dissatisfaction and opposition", Xinhua cited Zhang Shuili, a senior military official in China's western battle zone command, as saying.

It said only that the drone crashed in "recent days" and did not give a location.

"This action by India violated China's territorial sovereignty".

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

Responding to China's statement that over a drone crashing into Chinese territory, the Ministry of Defence on Thursday issued a statement where they admitted to the incident taking place.

In a significant diplomatic development after the standoff between Indian and Chinese troops in the Doklam region of Bhutan earlier this year, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi will visit India for the Russia-India-China Foreign Ministers' trilateral meeting here next week.

The foreign ministers of Russian Federation and China will visit India on December 11 for the much-delayed trilateral meeting, which is expected to review global and regional issues of mutual interest.

The standoff which began in mid-June ended on August 28 after Chinese troops stopped building a key road close to India's "Chicken Neck" corridor.

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.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told media here yesterday that Wang will meet top Indian officials on its sidelines. The road was being built by the Chinese troops in the area which is also claimed by Bhutan.
