La Jornada – Sedena refuses the Pentagon’s request to fly over Mexican airspace

The Secretary of National Defense (Sedena) denied a request by the US Department of Defense to fly over Mexican airspace to locate a balloon that, as the American object argued, came from Asia and would pass through our country, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said.

“The day before, so they could see the importance of acting respectfully to other governments but asserting our independence, they talked the Pentagon into asking for permission because they wanted to fly over our airspace with high-tech, military-level planes and drones, because they spotted a blimp that came from Hawaii and was on its way to Passing through Mexico.They claimed it was an Asian world, I don’t want to get involved in these matters (referring to the fact that it might be from China), and the answer was no.

In the morning, the Mexican president indicated that his government does not allow foreign ships and drones to enter national airspace.

He pointed out that Sedna asked the Pentagon to reach an agreement and send information so that the Mexican agency could follow up on this situation and follow the passage of the balloon.

“We will agree, send us the information and we have teams to do the follow-up (was the response). Indeed, an operation was carried out with planes and drones, and it was reported that it was a balloon at 35,000 feet, 5,000 feet above commercial air traffic. It was going to enter the day before yesterday at three o’clock in the morning via Manzanillo, Colima, and that he will leave via Tamaulipas.”

Recently there has been an exaggerated campaign because we have decided that control of Mexican airspace will be in the hands of the Department of Defense. It is a matter of national security and the defense has sufficient elements to ensure the protection of the airspace.
