The Chinese Foreign Ministry called the incident with the balloon a test of the sincerity of the United States Beijing has offered Washington to resolve the incident with the balloon in a calm constructive atmosphere without the use of force.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning stressed that the incident was an unintentional isolated incident. Earlier, the American side shot down a Chinese unmanned meteorological probe over the territory of the United States due to suspicions of espionage.

Mao Ning, Official representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry: "China has repeatedly informed Washington that the balloon is intended for use only for civilian purposes.
He deviated far from the planned course due to strong westerly winds and limited maneuvering capabilities. This is an unexpected situation caused by force majeure."

According to Mao Ning, the Pentagon recognized that the device did not pose any threat to people on earth. When Washington announced the appearance of the balloon, China immediately conducted an inspection and shared its results as soon as possible. However, the American side reacted asymmetrically to the incident, violating international conventions.

Mao Ning, Official representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry: "China is a responsible country.
We always strictly observe international law, respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other States. As history shows, it is the United States that often violates the norms of international relations, infringing on the sovereignty and integrity of other countries. We have clearly indicated that the incident with the balloon was caused by force majeure. But the US still deliberately inflated this story and even attacked the device. This is an irresponsible, unacceptable step."

According to Beijing, the incident with the balloon allows us to check how sincerely the United States is striving to improve relations with China.
