China said on Saturday that it was strongly against the move to block US WeChat and TikTok apps. And it has warned against retaliating to protect the interests of Chinese companies. The US had on Friday issued orders to ban popular Chinese social media apps TikTok and WeChat from Sunday to protect national security. A few weeks ago, India had banned them. India had said that these apps are a threat to the sovereignty, unity and security of the country.
Strongly against China move
Last month, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning TikTok and WeChat by 15 September. There was talk of banning them by September 15 if the ownership of the two Chinese companies does not change to American. China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOC), responding to an order by the Trump administration to ban TikTok and WeChat from Sunday, said they were strongly against the US’s move to block downloads of these apps.
The MOC said in a statement that in the absence of any evidence, the US has repeatedly used state power to suppress both enterprises for improper reasons. This has severely hampered his normal business work. In addition, the confidence of international investors in the US investment environment is low and the general global economic and business environment is damaged.
International rules and regulations should protect US position: China
He said that Washington should stop scaring immediately and protect international rules and order. The ministry said without giving any details that if the US stands with its way, then China will also take necessary steps to protect the legitimate rights and rights of its companies.
Let us know that the US Commerce Department had said on Friday that it will ban people in the US from downloading Chinese messaging app WeChat and video sharing app TikTok. This stop will start from 20 September. Commerce Department officials said that President Donald Trump could still withdraw the ban on TikTok’s download in the US before it is implemented late on Sunday. Because TikTok-owned company ByteDance is moving quickly to reach an agreement to save its American operations.
