US high-altitude balloons illegally flown over Chinese airspace: Wang


US high-altitude balloons have illegally flown over Chinese airspace on more than 10 occasions without the approval of the relevant Chinese authorities since January 2022, and the first thing the US should do is to reflect on its own behavior, instead of slandering, smearing and provoking confrontation, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said at Monday’s regular press briefing.

A Chinese civilian unmanned airship’s unintended entry into US airspace was due to force majeure and the incident was totally an accident, according to Wang. China firmly opposed the US use of force to attack China’s civilian unmanned airship, which was indiscriminate use of force and overacted, said Wang. For a long time, the US has abused its technological advantages to carry out large-scale indiscriminate clandestine operations and stealing.
