America has become alert on this act of China. Defense Minister Antony Blinken said that it has to be removed as soon as possible. Experts say that it will continue to hover in the American region for a few days.
US Department of Defense Headquarters Pentagon Report Said that another spy balloon of China passed over Latin America. Pentagon Press Secretary Brigadier General Pat Ryder said that we are receiving reports of another balloon passing over Latin America. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken canceled his trip to Beijing after the spy balloon was found. Beijing has given a statement in this matter. He has said that China has never violated the territory and airspace of any sovereign country.
China has said that some politicians and media in the United States have used the (balloon) incident as an excuse to attack and smear China. Shortly before the cancellation of Blinken’s visit, China issued a statement to reduce the tension between the two countries. China said that a civilian airplane had touched the US line due to the winds. This was not a conspiracy, it was an accident.
China said – we did nothing
China has said that the incident was an unexpected accident. China has always strictly followed international law and respected the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries. The ministry said that it was important to keep communication channels open at all levels, especially to deal with some unforeseen situations in a calm and credible manner.
The news of the Chinese surveillance balloon passing over Latin America comes a day after the Pentagon reported that a Chinese surveillance balloon was seen flying inside US territory in Montana. Blinken said on Friday that his first task is to ensure that the Chinese balloon is taken out of US airspace. Meanwhile, the Pentagon said that a Chinese balloon the size of three buses carrying a large number of payloads will probably remain in US skies for the next few days and has the ability to conduct extensive surveillance.
Blinken had to cancel the trip
Blinken said that the first task is to get it out of our airspace. I have always believed that it is important to keep the channels of communication open. In fact, this incident shows its importance and hence we will keep it. He said, when conditions permit, I plan to go to China, but the most important thing at the moment is to get this surveillance object out of our airspace and we will get it out of here. Blinken said, we have made it clear to China. I think any country whose airspace is violated in this way will react in the same way. I just wonder what would be China’s reaction if we were in our place. He said that this incident has weakened the purpose of the yatra.
Blinken said, China’s decision to fly a surveillance balloon over the US is unacceptable and irresponsible. It is a violation of our sovereignty, it is a violation of international law. It was very important that we take action to protect all sensitive information, protect our people and make it clear to China that this is an unacceptable and irresponsible move. Blinken was due to leave for China on Friday night in an effort to ease tensions between Beijing and Washington over trade, Taiwan, human rights and China’s claims in the South China Sea. This would have been the first visit to Beijing by a top US diplomat in years.
