A Chinese spy balloon was flying above Latin America, Pentagon spokesperson Pat Ryder said Friday, according to Anadolu Agency.
The Pentagon announced earlier that it is tracking a suspected Chinese high-altitude surveillance balloon above the continental US.
A Chinese Foreign Ministry statement said the balloon was a “civilian airship used for research, mainly meteorological purposes.”
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken postponed his planned trip to China following the incident.
