"The matter is being dealt with in accordance with the established protocol through institutional mechanisms to deal with situations along the India-China border areas", the statement said.

"The Indian UAV intruded into China's airspace and crashed recently, and China's border troops have conducted identification and verification over the vehicle", the Xinhua report quoted deputy head of the combat bureau of the Western Theatre Command's joint staff department, Zhang Shuili, as saying on Thursday.

The "intrusion" comes days before Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's December 11 visit to India, when such issues along with the Doklam standoff are likely to be discussed.

Recently, on Wednesday, China's Global Times accused India of attempting to influence the United States against China's increasing naval capabilities by projecting the Chinese People Liberation Army (PLA) navy as a direct rival of the Americans. The source said the drone had gone missing earlier this week, but the exact date of the incident was not revealed.

India is likely to push for naming Pakistan-based terror groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e- Mohammed in the communique to be adopted at the Russia-India- China (RIC) trilateral meeting here on Monday, citing a similar move by the BRICS grouping.

China formally complained about the incident with Indian diplomats, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a regular press briefing. Dokalam is located in the Sikkim section of the India, China border.

The People's Liberation Army's western theatre command's jurisdiction includes Tibet's border region with India.

Even though the Doklam standoff at the India-China border in Sikkim ended amicably, with the nations withdrawing their troops, things still seem to be a tad tense between the two. "We will fulfill our mission and responsibility and defend China's national sovereignty and security resolutely".

"According to our information, Wang will meet with the top officials of India and detailed information will be released in due course", Geng said. This will be the first visit by a top Chinese official to India after the Dokalam crisis and commencement of second five-year term after Chinese President Xi Jinping. Beijing has already built two airports adjacent to India and is constructing two more.
