"We'll take care of it."

This is how Joe Biden responds to those who ask him if the United States would shoot down the Chinese spy balloon.

The Biden administration is considering a plan to shoot down the Chinese spy balloon over the Atlantic and recover its remains.

The Bloomberg agency reports it, quoting the Ap.

US Northern Command (Usnorthcom) is coordinating with NASA to determine how large the debris fall radius would be if the Chinese spy balloon were to be shot down.

This was reported by Pentagon sources to CNN.

China: 'Checks in progress but avoid clamor over spy balloon'

China and the United States "must remain focused, communicate in a timely manner, avoid misjudgments, and manage differences in the face of unexpected situations."

This is what the head of diplomacy of the Chinese Communist Party Wang Yi said - according to a statement released by Beijing - during a phone call with the US secretary of state Antony Blinken regarding the story of the Chinese balloon intercepted on US territory.

The two sides discussed how to handle the unexpected situation in a "cold and professional way".

As a responsible country, "China strictly abides by international law. We do not accept any unfounded speculation or propaganda," added Wang, promoted just over a month ago from the position of foreign minister to head of diplomacy of the Chinese Communist Party.

The talks came after US media reported on the intercepted Chinese balloon over the United States, believed by the Pentagon to be one to conduct espionage activities.

The affair led Blinken to announce the postponement of the visit to Beijing, the first by a secretary of state in 5 years,

US media and politicians "have taken advantage" of the accusations launched against a spy balloon over US territory, "using the incident as a pretext to attack and defame China".

This is Beijing's harsh comment entrusted to a note from the Chinese Foreign Ministry, released after US Secretary of State Antony Blinken postponed a planned trip to Beijing over the weekend.

"We have received reports that another Chinese spy balloon is in transit over the skies of Latin America," Pentagon spokesman General Pat Ryder told CNN.

It is unclear exactly which Latin American country is flying over Beijing's spy balloon.

But, according to reports from the Pentagon,
