China has expressed "strong dissatisfaction and opposition" over an Indian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)'s alleged "intrusion" into its territory.

The Indian drone "intruded" into China's airspace and crashed recently, and China's border troops have conducted identification and verification over the vehicle, said Zhang Shuili, deputy head of the combat bureau of the Western Theatre Command's joint staff department.

India has not responded to the charge.

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. In 1962, they fought a brief, but inconclusive border conflict.
