President Joe Biden stated Wednesday that the United States is “not looking for conflict” with China regardless of tensions over the taking pictures down of what US officers say was a Chinese spy balloon.
“We’re going to compete fully with China, but… we’re not looking for conflict — and that’s been the case so far,” he stated in an interview with the PBS community.
Biden’s feedback apparently sought to defuse tensions over the dramatic incident through which an enormous Chinese balloon traversed a lot of the United States earlier than being shot down by a US Air Force jet simply off the east coast on Saturday.
Asked if the incident had triggered main harm to the connection with Beijing, Biden stated “no.”
China insists the balloon was merely conducting climate analysis however the Pentagon described it as a high-tech spying operation. The balloon floated at an altitude far greater than most airplanes and crossed straight over no less than one delicate US army web site.
