China describes Australia’s ban on TikTok as discriminatory

Beijing, Apr 7 (Prensa Latina) China on Friday described as discriminatory, Australia's ban on using the Chinese app, TikTok on government devices, and demanded to ensure a fair environment for any of its companies.

The Ministry of Commerce criticized the measure and considered that far from protecting national security, it will damage the confidence of the international community in business in that country, as well as the interests of its own companies and population.

China demanded Canberra a fair, open and transparent treatment to Chinese companies’ operations, and the creation of a favorable environment for the healthy development of economic and trade relations.

On Tuesday, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs also condemned the Australian measure, deplored that digital security is being taken as a pretext to harass foreign firms, and rejected abuse of state power in trade matters.

Australia is the latest nation to veto TikTok on official equipment, citing national security concerns.

The offensive against the popular mini-video program began in the United States during the last stage in office of former President Donald Trump (2017-2021).

His successor, Joe Biden, has taken it up and includes banning its use on US Government devices.
