Beijing, PTI. China has been severely stung by the US taking steps to stop
downloading We-chat and Ticket-lock apps. China has opposed the move, and has warned of retaliation to protect the interests of its companies. The Chinese Commerce Ministry reacted to the Trump administration’s decision to ban Tick-tok and We-chat on Saturday, saying the United States is taking such actions without proof.
The Chinese Ministry of Commerce said that we strongly oppose this move of America. The US has consistently used power to suppress Chinese enterprises without evidence. These US steps have severely affected the general business activities of Chinese companies. This move by the US has hurt the investment climate, which has hurt normal global business activities.
The Chinese Ministry gave a tearful applause to the US and said that we are preparing to take retaliatory measures to protect the interests of our companies. However, it has not been told from China what kind of steps it is preparing to take. Let me tell you that on 29 June, India had banned 59 apps from China along with Tick-tok and We-chat. Currently, India has banned 224 apps from China.
