People’s Daily: Chinese Ministry of Commerce Responded to New U.S. Sanctions

People’s Daily recently reported that the spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Commerce responded to the recent actions taken by the U.S. Department of Commerce to list additional Chinese individuals and agencies on the “Entity List” for sanction. The United States identified 24 Chinese agencies and individuals as doing “military procurement” and nine agencies for human rights violations in Xinjiang. China strongly opposes this new action against Chinese companies, universities, research institutes, and individuals under the names of military involvement and human rights matters. The Unites States frequently abuses its export control system to hammer other nations. This abuse of state power significantly harms the international trade order and threatens the global supply chain. It will not benefit China, the United States, or the world. China urges the U.S. to stop this wrong behavior immediately and to protect decisively the legal rights of Chinese companies.
