US President Joe Biden says that the spies will not apologize to China for shooting down the balloon, but will talk to Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.
Speaking to the media at the White House, US President Joe Biden claimed that China was using the balloon for espionage.
He said that if something poses a threat to American citizens, it will be removed. They do not want a new cold war, but they will get to the bottom of the matter.
It should be noted that the Chinese balloon was at a height of 40,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean when it was shot down by an American warplane.
China has denied using the balloon for espionage. According to China, the balloon was being used to gather weather information and had strayed from its course.
