illusions about the challenges or the threats that they face from many

countries or from China. Spokesperson Ned Price said on Monday, during the state

"We're under no illusions about the challenges about

the threats we face from the PRC. The reason we have sought to engage in

dialogue, in diplomacy, is in the first instance to manage that competition, to

see to it that that competition doesn't veer into conflict, but also to set

guardrails on a relationship that is complex, that is consequential, precisely

because we have a number of concerns about PRC behavior, espionage being one of

them," Ned Price said.

There was a Chinese spy balloon earlier this week, which was

spotted hovering over Montana in the US. Later, it was discovered that the

balloon was travelling in the middle of the country, it was then shot down by US

military on Saturday.

According to the reports US President Joe Biden said that his

administration will "take care" of the suspected Chinese spy balloon.

Previously when asked question Biden did not comment of shooting down the balloon

instead said "We're gonna take care of it," according to reports.

Meanwhile, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said that the

balloon entered by accident in US airspace. The US State Department called the

presence of the balloon in US territory a clear violation of their sovereignty

and international law.
