"We will fulfil our mission and responsibility and defend China's national sovereignty and security resolutely", he said.

"An Indian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) which was on a regular training mission inside the Indian territory lost contact with the ground control due to some technical problem and crossed over the LAC in the Sikkim Sector", a Ministry of Defence statement said, according to The Indian Express.

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.

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

In November, China again "criticised" a visit by President Ram Nath Kovind to Arunachal Pradesh, which China claims, saying China opposed any activities by Indian leaders in disputed areas. India, citing concerns about territorial integrity, moved soldiers into the flashpoint zone to halt the work, prompting Beijing to accuse it of trespassing.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told media here yesterday that Wang will meet top Indian officials on its sidelines.

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.

Indian and Chinese troops were in a face-to-face situation near the Sikkim sector of the global border after the Chinese People's Liberation Army tried to build a road in Doklam in mid-June.

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. Army chief Bipin Rawat had said in September that India could not afford to be complacent and must be prepared for war.
