Biden does not consider the incident with the Chinese balloon a threat to US security.

US President Joe Biden said he does not consider the situation with the Chinese balloon a serious violation of the country’s national security.

No,” Biden answered a question from a Telemundo journalist whether the incident with the PRC balloon was a serious violation of US national security.

“This is not a serious violation. Of course, this is a violation of international law and our airspace. And as soon as it comes to our airspace, we can do whatever we want there,” Biden said.


The US military shot down a Chinese balloon over the Atlantic last week, which had previously crossed Canada and the US land. Washington claims the balloon was a spy, Beijing says it’s a lost civilian weather balloon, and called the US response “excessive.”
