Months after a tense standoff between China and India along their Himalayan border, Beijing on Thursday expressed anger over what it says was an Indian drone that crashed inside its territory.
"This action by India violated China's territorial sovereignty. We express strong dissatisfaction and opposition," Xinhua cited Zhang Shuili, a senior military official in China's western battle zone command, as saying.
China said the drone crashed in "recent days" but didn't say where. Zhang said his country would defend its national sovereignty against such intrusions.
