Asia (bbabo.net), - Another Chinese balloon flies over Latin America, CNN reports, citing a US Department of Defense statement.
“We are receiving information about a balloon that flies over Latin America. We estimate this is another Chinese reconnaissance balloon,” Pentagon spokesman Patrick Ryder said in a statement.
According to a US official, the balloon does not appear to be heading towards the US at the moment.
On Thursday, a Pentagon spokesman said that a reconnaissance balloon had been spotted over the United States. The military said it belongs to China. The administration declared it "unacceptable" to have a foreign intelligence apparatus in US sovereign airspace and canceled an upcoming visit to Beijing by State Department Secretary Anthony Blinken.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning urged not to speculate on the topic of "Chinese spy balloon". The Foreign Ministry said that the balloon seriously deviated from the route due to the wind, Beijing regrets that it was over the United States.
