According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the US “has repeatedly endangered cooperation between Chinese companies and other countries using unjustified security reasons, which is an act of economic coercion”.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin emphasized that this action will not find support or lead anywhere.
“When relevant countries demand the U.S. side to present credible evidence on the so-called security threats, it becomes evasive and hesitant on the issue,” he added.
The spokesman reiterated China’s opposition to the U.S. stretching the concept of national security too far and weaponizing economic and trade issues to obstruct normal investment.
Such actions seriously violate international rules and shock the security and stability of global industrial and supply chains, Wang said.
The spokesman made the remarks in connection with a recent warning by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), about international cooperation by a United Arab Emirates company involving some Chinese companies, including Huawei.
