International News: China says balloon over U.S. is vessel blown off course

Posted: Saturday, February 4, 2023. 1:50 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Friday, officials in China said that the “airship” that is seen flying over the United States is for civilian meteorological and other scientific purposes, Reuters report.

In addition, the country’s officials shared regret that it strayed into U.S. airspace.

Meanwhile, in the United States, officials say that the Chinese spy balloon had been flying over the U.S. for a couple of days.

Just days before a planned trip to China by U.S.Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

“The airship is from China and is civilian in nature, used for meteorological and other scientific research. Due to the influence of westerly winds and its limited control capability, the airship deviated from its intended course,” China’s Foreign Ministry said.

“China regrets that the airship strayed into the United States by mistake due to force majeure. China will continue to maintain communication with the U.S. side to properly handle this accident,” it added.

Blinken has since postponed his trip to China after the suspected Chinese spy balloon was tracked flying across the United States in what Washington called a “clear violation” of U.S. sovereignty.
