The Pentagon has announced the sighting of another Chinese spy balloon, this time over the skies of Latin America. The recent discovery raises concerns about potential surveillance activities by the Chinese government in the region.
According to the Pentagon press secretary, Brig Gen Patrick Ryder, “We now assess it is another Chinese surveillance balloon.” However, it is unclear exactly which country in the region the balloon is hovering over, but it is not believed to be heading towards the United States.
The discovery of this balloon comes just a day after the US government confirmed the detection of a high-altitude surveillance balloon over US airspace. The US officials are currently tracking the balloon and it is expected to remain in US airspace for the next few days.
This situation is a developing story and the international community is closely monitoring any updates and the potential implications for national security.
