    When asked about US claims that the balloons had been used by Beijing for espionage purposes, the spokeswoman said the aircraft was “civilian in nature and used for flight tests.” “Affected by weather conditions and with limited self-control, this airship seriously deviated from its intended route and mistakenly sailed through the skies over Latin America and the Caribbean,” she said.
