India Claims Reconnaissance Drone Violated Chinese Airspace Due to Glitch

Recently, on Wednesday, China's Global Times accused India of attempting to influence the USA against China's increasing naval capabilities by projecting the Chinese People Liberation Army (PLA) navy as a direct rival of the Americans. India had objected to the construction highlighting its security concerns.

Media reports previously said the RIC meeting was planned for April this year but Wang did not confirm dates in the backdrop of China's protests over the Dalai Lama visiting Arunachal Pradesh in the same month.

It has also been reported earlier that PLA was slowly starting to increase the number of troops at the border and Beijing has once again started working on its roads and upgrading and widening the existing routes.

On South China Sea, India is expected to renew its call for respecting all provisions of UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and ensuring freedom of navigation in the resource-rich waters.

Indian soldiers then alerted Chinese authorities and received assistance in locating the drone.

"According to our information, Wang will meet with the top officials of India and detailed information will be released in due course", Geng said.

"China asks India to immediately stop its activities of using unmanned aircraft near the border, and to work alongside China to maintain the border area's peace and tranquillity", Shuang said, quoted in Reuters. Both the officials are also mandated to discuss the state of entire gamut of bilateral ties.

Yang has been elevated under Xi's second tenure as he was elected to the CPC's highest policy body, the Politburo.

Pakistan-based terror groups are likely to find a mention in the communique to be adopted at the Russia-India-China (RIC) trilateral meeting on Monday, a news report said.

Relations between India and China witnessed a downturn owing to differences over a series of issues including China blocking India's move to get Masood Azhar banned by the United Nations, its opposition to India's bid for NSG membership and Belt and Road initiative.

In September, India's army chief General Bipin Rawat had said that India could not afford to be complacent and must be prepared for war.

"Such tactics do not reflect well on China s worldwide image". The face-off had ended on August 28. It will be the first high-level visit from China to India after the Dokalam standoff.
