EUA procuram os restos do suspeito balão espião
February 6, 2023 - Os militares dos EUA procuram recuperar os restos do suspeito balão de vigilância chinês abatido ao largo da costa da Carolina do Sul.
The U.S. believes the balloon was monitoring sensitive military sites.
Its discovery set off a diplomatic crisis, with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken immediately calling off this weekend’s trip to China.
The Chinese authorities denied it was used for spying and insisted it was a weather ship blown astray.
Relations between China and the U.S. have been strained by the incident, with the Pentagon calling it an "unacceptable violation" of its sovereignty.
The Chinese government has admitted a second balloon spotted over Latin America on Friday is from China – but claimed it is intended for civilian use, the BBC said.
