China said it’s strongly discontented with the US downing of its balloon and reserves the right for any necessary reaction to the incident.

The use of force against the balloon, which China said is for civilian use and entered the US accidentally, was an “obvious overreaction” and violated international standard practices, China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement on Sunday.

China has asked the US to handle the matter in a calm, professional and reserved manner, the ministry said, adding that the US Department of Defense had stated the balloon won’t pose a threat to personnel on the ground. Chinese State Councilor Wang Yi had sought calm and timely communication between the two countries to avoid misunderstandings in a call with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Friday.

The full statement from the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs reads:

China expresses its strong dissatisfaction and protest against the US’s use of force to attack civilian unmanned airships. The Chinese side has repeatedly informed the US side after verification that the airship is for civilian use and entered the US due to force majeure, which was completely accidental. China clearly requires the US to handle it properly in a calm, professional and restrained manner. A spokesman for the US Department of Defense also stated that the balloon will not pose a military or personal threat to ground personnel. Under such circumstances, the U.S. insists on using force, obviously overreacting and seriously violating international practice. China will resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of relevant companies, while reserving the right to make further necessary reactions.

The U.S. military took down the Chinese balloon Saturday afternoon, just off the coast of South Carolina.

The foreign surveillance balloon had been allowed to travel across the entire United States before the Defense Department allowed it to be shot down, claiming that they couldn’t do so earlier due to the danger of falling debris.

  1. Don’t fly unauthorized crap over our country and we won’t shoot it down. No way in hell would china allow anything of ours to fly all the way across their country.

  2. Just another one of those false flags the lying ass media has come up with, to get everybody’s attention… while they’re screwing us somewhere else! I can’t believe so many people are “woo hah’ing” over this dumb shit.

  3. Biden and China are criminals and we need to impeach Biden now and since he loves China let him go and live there and take all the illegal car with him

  4. OMG…too bad for China! They send anything our way like that (including their spies in our schools and anywhere in US) they decide to take the chance of getting blown out of the water so to speak. We need to stand up to what they’re trying to steal from our country. Our (fake) administration needs to step down and let real adults take charge of the ridiculousnesses going on in our world!

  5. GFY xi jinping. You started this bullshit. Now eat it. May a giant tsunami take china the hell off the earth. You are nothing but crooked thieves, liars, thugs, drug pushers, and counterfeiters. You would take the clothing off a dead person and sell it if you could get away with it.

    • Not to mention the atrocities they send down on their own people, we should have blown them off the face of the earth during the Korean War !

      • You damn right. china sucks. They steal from others and claim it as their own. They are the biggest counterfeiters in the world. Sending their chinese counterfeit shit over here. The dollar stores are full of their useless garbage. Wonder what they did with all those dead bodies as a result of covid. Probably swept them into the street to be taken out with the trash or dumped them in the ocean. I avoid buying anything made in china. I despise them.

  6. Bullshit China they are a bunch of lairs and we had every right to shoot the balloon down because China was violating international into our country. If it was us doing that we would really be in trouble with China. No other country is allowed to do this to our country

  7. Did China get their human slaves to make that balloon. Professional??? The only thing China is professional on is human organ harvesting. Their evil. That’s what they are!!!!!! INHUMANE…. The US only annihilated the balloon after it floated over the entire US… Epic FAIL!!!!

  8. China Joe doesn’t want to piss off his commie masters. And here we are. Will you bend the knee or take out these psychopaths the second they’re in your crosshairs?

  9. Why did China not respond as soon as the Spy Balloon enter Us Airspace⁉️⁉️ It should have been shot down immediately in Alaska‼️ There outrage is s show of how upset they are Bull-shit‼️ Do it again & it will be taken out immediately ‼️‼️
    It’s time to stand up to these tyrants of course there is a Moron sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.‼️‼️

  10. Biden is totally compromised by China after receiving $ 31 million from them, Biden in turn turned over our Bagram Air Base to China and then permitted their Spy Balloon to enter our air space and selectively surveil our military sites. Money talks and Biden selfishly turned into a TRAITOR against America’s interests! He must be impeached and removed from office ASAP before he makes any further concessions to our chief enemy!

  11. Everybody happy now! The moron in the WH shot it down after it flew over a dozen military installations and Chinese bought farmland next to our missle silos in ND. Damage already done now. Nothing to see here. Let’s move on!
