UN doesn’t want to see increased tensions between China, US due to ‘spy balloon’

The airship is still flying over US territory, said UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric

UNITED NATIONS, February 3. /TASS/. The United Nations would not like to see rising tensions between China and the United States due to the China-owned airship that is still flying over the territory of the United States, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said at a briefing on Friday.

"We have no information beyond what we see in the press in the US or we see in the press in China. So I have no comment on that particular thing, except to say that obviously, we would not want to see situation where tensions would be increasing between Washington and Beijing.
