China denounces extraterritoriality of US laws and sanctions

Beijing, Feb 3 (Prensa Latina) On Friday, China denounced the United States' abuses with its extraterritorial laws and sanctions against individuals, companies, and countries such as Cuba, Iran, Russia, and Syria, as it also undermined the order and development of the international relations.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs delved into an article on the implications, expansion, and dangers of Washington’s practice, established for the first time in 1945.

It described the United States as the only sanctioning superpower in the world and mentioned that the White House imposed more than 9,400 punitive measures at the end of the fiscal year 2021.

The Foreign Ministry cited, as an example, the Helms-Burton Act passed in 1990 to punish individuals and companies that have economic-commercial ties with Cuba, as well as the opposition that emerged in the European Union because that tool allows lawsuits on US soil.

It condemned that the extraterritoriality of US laws and sanctions hurt Cuba, Russia, Iran, Syria, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan, among others.

The Foreign Ministry demanded the United States assume its responsibilities as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and stop resorting to illegal and unilateral sanctions and extraterritorial measures.
