Chinese Spy Balloon Flying Over US, Antony Blinken Postpones China Visit
US China Tension: There is a possibility of tension between the US and China after a suspected Chinese spy balloon was seen in the US city of Montana. The US Air Force has a special base in Montana, from where intercontinental missiles are operated. There are only 3 such airbases in the whole of America. The Pentagon claims that China sent this balloon for espionage. At the same time, China says that it was just a civil balloon.
After the Chinese balloon was seen, another important news came from America on Friday evening. It is reported that now American Foreign Minister Antony Blinken will not go to China. He has postponed his Chinese trip after seeing a Chinese balloon over the American airbase. However, this has not yet been confirmed by quoting the US State Department.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken could also meet Chinese President Xi Jinping. This was the first time in 6 years, when an American Secretary of State was going to visit China. However, now this visit has become sour after the Chinese handiwork came to the fore.
Pentagon said- Balloon was sent for monitoring
According to America’s ABC News report, Blinken no longer wants the topic of balloons to dominate his meetings with Chinese officials. Citing an American official, Bloomberg News also published such a report, which states that Blinken’s visit will be postponed.
At the same time, according to media reports, the US Defense Ministry is reviewing the Pentagon Chinese cleaning on the sight of the Chinese balloon. Pentagon Press Secretary Pat Ryder said – China’s spy balloon has been seen in North Western City Montana. The Pentagon has claimed that it was sent to the US for surveillance.
