The president of United States Joe Biden warned that if more objects that represent a danger to the population are detected, they will be demolished by the US military.
“I want it to be very clear that any object that flies over our territory and represents a danger to our population will be shot down.or by instructions directly from me,” he said.
In a message from the White House, Biden said that so far there is no evidence that the three objects shot down last weekend are of Chinese origin.
“We still don’t know exactly what these three objects were. but it seems that none of the three belong to China’s spy balloon program,” he said.
Taking stock of the recent downings of the three unidentified flying objects and the Chinese “spy” balloon, Joe Biden assured that so far there is no evidence that the activity of more objects has increased flying over US territory.
“We don’t have any evidence that there has been a sudden increase in the number of objects in the sky,” he said.
The US president commented that he plans, without giving a date, speak to his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, about the downed “spy” balloon at the beginning of February, but he announced that he will not apologize for what happened.
“I look forward to speaking with President Xi… I’m not going to apologize for shooting down that balloon“, he asserted.
On February 4, the United States armed forces shot down on the coast of South Carolina a Chinese balloon that was described as a spy.
Then last weekend on Friday the 10th, an object hovering at high altitude over Alaska was shot down.
On Saturday, February 11, the United States, in coordination with the Canadian government, carried out a new demolition in the Yucon region of northwestern Canada.
