The United States also threatens to attack ant group and Tencent payment platform Hua Chunying: no different from modern pirates


[Global Times – global network reporter Wu Yuanchun] Reuters quoted Bloomberg on August as saying the United States is considering restrictions on China’s ant group and Tencent Holdings Limited’s digital payment platform for the so-called “threat to national security.”. At a regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on October 9, foreign media reporters asked a question to spokesperson Hua Chunying.
Hua said that you know that some people in the United States have been generalizing the concept of national security and abusing the power of the state. They have previously made unreasonable pressure and threats against Chinese enterprises such as Huawei and tiktok, but there is no real evidence. We may recall that the US once hyped the so-called “compulsory technology transfer in China”. But now, senior officials of the United States have publicly threatened to leave tiktok code in the United States. If the conditions of the US side are not met, it threatens to close or sanction Chinese enterprises.
“I think the US side is a typical government coercion trade, which is no different from modern pirates.” In fact, such sanctions or threats to other country’s enterprise personnel are common, either to Chinese companies or to allies of the United States, Hua said.
Hua Chunying said that everyone still remember the Japanese Toshiba incident in 1987 and ALSTOM in France in 2014. Now it is tiktok, wechat and Huawei of China. You mentioned that now they have targeted ant group and Tencent again. “The United States, without any real evidence, has unjustifiably suppressed and coerced non-U. This is a kind of naked hegemony and tyranny, a gross trampling of market economy and international economic and trade rules, a major threat to the security of global industrial chain supply chain and a serious distortion of global market. ”
Hua stressed that we firmly oppose the bullying act of the United States in popularizing the concept of national security, abusing national power and unjustifiably suppressing foreign enterprises. We hope that the United States will respect the principle of market economy and fair competition, abide by international economic and trade rules, and provide an open, fair, fair and non discriminatory business environment for the investment and operation of enterprises in the United States. China will continue to take necessary measures to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises.
