Daily digital news desk: The China (China) balloon entered United States (US) airspace! China has been accused of stealing important information through this globe in various areas of the Americas. But even seeing the balloon, the US military can’t shoot it down. Because the local population will suffer as a result of the debris from this balloon. By the way, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken will visit China on the 5th of this month. However, there is a question as to whether the trip will be canceled after the discovery of this balloon.

According to the US Defense Headquarters Pentagon, the huge balloon can be seen in the night sky in late January. Authorities are almost certain the balloon was shipped from China. This balloon is seen in sensitive areas in terms of security. One balloon was seen in the Montana area. Montana is home to one of the nation’s major nuclear testing facilities. China sent the balloon to verify the United States’ stockpiles of nuclear weapons, authorities say.

However, despite seeing this huge balloon, American officials are unable to shoot it down. Brigadier General Patrick Ryder said on behalf of the Pentagon: “The US administration is monitoring these balloons. At the current height of the balloon, there is no problem in air traffic. There is no danger of any kind of attack via this balloon. Also, destroying the balloon will cause harm to ordinary people by being buried in its rubble.” However, the Pentagon claims that such balloons have been seen for quite some time.

US officials have already discussed this incident with the Chinese ambassadors. The US administration has taken several measures to ensure that no important information reaches China via balloons. However, there are no details on what restrictions have been introduced. By the way, Anthony Blinken is visiting China in a few days. He will also discuss the Russia-Ukraine war. Before that, heat rises in the diplomatic circles of the two countries because of the balloon sent by China.
