US Pentagon says another Chinese spy balloon is flying over Latin America

Chinese spy balloon over Latin America: With the growing suspense regarding the Chinese globe, the controversy is deepening. Meanwhile, after the US, Chinese spy balloons have also appeared in Latin America. Information has been given through the issuance of a statement about it from the Pentagon on Friday (February 3) night. The Pentagon says another Chinese spy balloon is flying over Latin America. We think this could be China’s second spy balloon.

China had previously clarified that it is a civilian balloon and is for meteorological research work. At the same time, the Pentagon flatly rejected this claim by the Chinese government and clearly said that this balloon is being used for espionage.

Now spy balloon is seen in Latin America

The Pentagon said late Friday that another Chinese spy balloon was seen flying over Latin America. “We are investigating reports of a balloon passing over Latin America. We are now assessing that this is a second Chinese spy balloon,” Pentagon spokesman Pat Ryder said in a statement to CNN.

However, it was not clear where in Latin America the globe was. According to a defense official, US Northern Command is coordinating with NASA to determine what damage the debris could cause if the balloon hovering over the US were shot down. Authorities said they are still tracking the suspected Chinese spy balloon.

The Pentagon said it does not currently pose a threat and is expected to remain in the US for the next several days. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken postponed his visit to China over the incident. Blinken told the Chinese spy balloon that this was a clear violation of our sovereignty. However, he also said that the lines of communication will remain open to resolve this issue.

What did the White House say?

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said President Joe Biden was first briefed on the balloon on Tuesday (January 31) and is receiving constant updates from the national security team. Top leaders of the House and Senate intelligence committees will receive information on the Chinese spy balloons next week, according to a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Cleaning up China in a spy balloon

At the same time, China (China), rejecting the US claim, has called it a civil balloon. China says it has strayed into US airspace. The balloon entering US airspace is for meteorological research work. The Chinese Foreign Ministry said: “We have never violated the territory or airspace of any sovereign country. The United States has exaggerated this to smear China. The Chinese side is strongly opposed.”
