US verfolgen chinesischen Spionageballonballoon

By Jordi Bou

February 3, 2023 - Aus US verfolgt man einen verdächtigen chinesischen Überwachungsballon, der beim Flug über sensible Gebiete entdeckt wurde.

Defence officials said the balloon had been watched since it entered U.S. airspace by several methods, including crewed aircraft, and has most recently been tracked crossing Montana, home to one of the three nuclear missile silo fields in the country, at Malmstrom Air Force Base.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is expected to travel to China next week for a visit agreed to in November by Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping. It was not clear how the discovery of the spy balloon might affect those plans.
