The United States intercepted this evening (Saturday) the Chinese spy balloon that had been hovering over the Atlantic Ocean for the past few days.

This, despite the recommendation of military leaders not to drop the balloon, due to the high safety risk that could have been caused by the debris.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry claimed that the balloon found was an accident caused by "force majeure".

They accused American politicians and media of exploiting the situation to discredit China.

In the United States, they added that the balloon was a clear violation of the country's sovereignty, and at the same time, Foreign Minister Anthony Blinken postponed his visit to China, which was planned for the coming week.

The US government announced yesterday that the country has been tracking a suspected Chinese spy balloon that was spotted over the skies of Montana in recent days.

Overnight, Republican Senator Jerry Moran said he had received reports of another balloon over northeast Kansas.

"China has invaded the airspace of the United States, Biden needs to take action to address this situation. Further delay is unacceptable," said Moran.

Later, a Pentagon spokesman told CNN that another balloon had been spotted in the skies over South America.

"We are seeing reports of a balloon that went to Latin America. We currently estimate that it is another Chinese spy balloon," he said.
