Beijing criticizes UK sanctions against Chinese companies

Beijing, Jun 19 (Prensa Latina) Today, China's Ministry of Commerce rejected British sanctions against Chinese companies.

The ministry explained that London insisted on listing Chinese companies, which has harmed Sino-British economic and trade relations.

The UK’s approach is a very unilateral sanction with no basis in international law or UN authorization and is typical ‘long-arm jurisdiction’ behavior. “We urge the UK to proceed from the overall interests of economic and social relations between the two countries”, the statement said.
