Taiwanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement on Sunday condemning China's alleged surveillance of the United States via a high-altitude balloon, which the US downed on Saturday, APA reports citing Teletrader.

"Such actions by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) government contravene international law, breach the airspace of other countries, and violate their sovereignty," the ministry argued, noting that the disputed island sees the incident as one that should not be dismissed by the international community.

The flying object was first spotted on Wednesday in Montana and was shot down once it drifted off the East Coast, in a move that Beijing strongly protested against.
