"Spy" balloon: China recognizes a second device above Latin America


As the balloon having flown over the United States, this one, assures China, has "seriously deviated from its trajectory".

Another wandering weather balloon?

After the affair of the balloon as big as three buses flying over the United States, at the origin of a tension in Sino-American relations, China recognizes on Monday that the aerostat spotted on Saturday above Latin America belongs well.

The Colombian military said it had sighted a balloon-like aerial object on Sunday, after the Pentagon hinted Friday night that another Chinese balloon was flying over Latin America.

"Due to the effects of the climate and due to its limitations in terms of maneuverability, this balloon seriously deviated from its planned trajectory and became lost in the sky over Latin America and the Caribbean," said Mao Ning, a spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

As for the first balloon, she assured that it was a "civilian" machine, in no way a "surveillance" probe as accused by the United States.
