The US lie at first was that the drone was allegedly 'stolen' in international waters. That is not true. It was seized, not stolen, because a military vessel can have innocent passage in an EEZ but not engaged in military activity. The illegal act was perpetrated in Chinese waters before the drone was seized in the sea nearly 100 km off the Philippines.
The drone was seized using a lifeboat from the ship trailing the errant US spy ship. It was not theft because the legal definition of Theft is taking another person's property with intention to keep it forever. In this case, the drone was returned on Monday 19 Dec after the seizure to warn against any such future illegal activity.
The drone is a low tech device which is made in the US. The iPhones are made in China. Are you surprised that they even work?

Hey, China, you can put military bases in Cuba and other latin american countries to counterbalance ...
Mixing up issues invite uninvited problems! No secret about looking in the backyard of distant nation to learn and understand them better. Problem is US drone was the potential cause of intentional actions!
