There was an allegation of collecting information about the military site
The statement comes after some US lawmakers said earlier this year that the balloon was gathering information while flying over much of the US mainland in early February, including when it was shot down by the military. Sensitive military site information was also included, where ballistic missiles were located.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio, vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in February that the balloon was "another method they use to gather intelligence about us. We have to be mindful of that and protect ourselves against "
China had warned
China maintains that the balloon was merely a harmless, unmanned civilian vehicle. He told America with this that he was deliberately making false allegations, the consequences of which would be wrong.
