China News Service, Beijing, November 2 (Huang Yuqin) In response to the Penn State judge’s ruling to block the US Department of Commerce’s ban on TikTok, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin stated at a regular press conference on the 2nd that China hopes that the US will truly respect the market economy And the principle of fair competition to provide an open, fair, just and non-discriminatory business environment for companies from all over the world to invest and operate in the United States.
A reporter asked a question. According to reports, on October 30, the Pennsylvania District Judge ruled that the ban on TikTok from the U.S. Department of Commerce will take effect on November 12. What is China’s comment on this?
Wang Wenbin said that I have noticed relevant reports.
China has always opposed the US's generalization of national security concepts, abuse of national power, and unreasonable suppression of bullying by foreign companies.
Wang Wenbin pointed out that we have also noticed that the relevant judge wrote: "The (U.S.) government's own description of the threat to national security caused by the TikTok application is hypothetical." Economic and trade rules provide an open, fair, just, and non-discriminatory business environment for companies from all over the world to invest and operate in the United States.
