The Chinese Ministry of National Defense (MOD) denied late on June 5 that one People’s Liberation Army (PLA) helicopter violated Indian airspace.

The MOD made the statement in response to Indian media allegations. A report on the Hindu dated June 3 read that “a Chinese helicopter has violated Indian air space in the Barahoti area of Chamoli district along the India-China border in Uttrakhand on Sunday.”

But the MOD clarified, saying that the report was “inconsistent with the facts,” adding that Chinese troops were conducting training on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control along the China-India border.
