"The Indian move violated China's territorial sovereignty".

China expressed "strong dissatisfaction" with India on Thursday over the recent crash of an Indian drone in Chinese territory, an incident that could cause more friction along their disputed border.

BEIJING-Beijing is objecting to an Indian aerial vehicle's intrusion into its airspace after the unmanned vehicle crashed in Chinese territory. "We strongly express our dissatisfaction and opposition", deputy director of the army's western theatre combat bureau, Zhang Shuili, said in a statement.

Chinese military's western theatre command jurisdiction covers nearly all of the 3488-km LAC, including Tibet's border region with India and the Ladakh region.

"China's border defence forces took a professional and responsible attitude in conducting an inspection of the device", Zhang said, adding that the military would resolutely defend national sovereignty and security.

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

The 73-day-long Dokalam standoff ended on August 28 after Chinese troops stopped building a key road close to India's Chicken Neck corridor.

The external affairs ministry said Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will visit India for the trilateral.

A Chinese military official, speaking to official news agency Xinhua, did not say that Indian border troops had contacted their Chinese counterparts about the incident and instead struck a more strident note.

Wang's visit is regarded significant as it is first by a top Chinese official to India after the Doklam standoff which strained ties between the two neighbours.

Relations between the two countries soured in June when India said it opposed a Chinese attempt to extend a road on the Doklam/Donglang plateau, at the border of China, India and Bhutan.
