Indian airspace violated 11 times: Antony

New Delhi, Dec 2 (IANS) Pakistan and China violated Indian airspace six and three times respectively in the past one year, Defence Minister A.K. Antony said Wednesday.

In a written reply to a question in parliament, Antony said US aircraft entered the Indian airspace illegally on two occasions.

In May, a slow moving aircraft of the Chinese Air Force crossed the international border. On June 21 and 24, two Chinese helicopters entered the Indian airspace.

Pakistan’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle crossed the Line of Control (LoC), which divides Jammu and Kashmir between India and Pakistan, five times.

Twice US transport and cargo aircraft entered the Indian territory without proper authorisation.

‘All such cases are taken up with the concerned country through diplomatic channels as per established procedure,’ Antony added.
