Chinese Spy Balloon

In response to claims that it was being used for surveillance, military jets shot down an identical balloon in US airspace on Saturday. China has refuted claims that it was spying, claiming that it was merely monitoring the weather.

A diplomatic dispute between Washington and Beijing has resulted from the event. US military authorities reported that a second Chinese balloon had been sighted over Latin America on Friday, just before fighter aircraft shot the balloon down over the weekend.

China said that an aircraft had unintentionally flown into the airspace over the Americas and the Caribbean on Monday. The second balloon deviated substantially from its intended course, Mao told reporters, noting the aircraft’s limited maneuverability and the weather.

She noted that the unmanned aircraft in question, which was imported from China, is of a civilian nature and is utilized for flying experiments.

China is a responsible nation that has always adhered to international law strictly in order to communicate with and deal with all parties involved, without creating a danger to any nation.

The Colombian air force reported over the weekend that an item with features resembling a balloon had been spotted on February 3 in the nation’s airspace at a height of more than 55,000 feet.
