When asked about India’s latest move, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian expressed serious concern about it at a press conference. He said that four times since June this year, India has banned China-linked smartphone apps in the name of national security.
The spokesman said that this step is against the market principles and the rules of the World Trade Organization. It ignored the interests and legitimate rights of Chinese companies. Zhao said that the Chinese government always asks its companies to follow international regulations and local law while working in other countries. He said that economic and trade cooperation of China and India is beneficial for both countries. The spokesman said that we urge the Indian side to immediately rectify this discriminatory stance and avoid further steps that harm bilateral cooperation.
Let us know that on Tuesday, India banned 43 more Chinese apps including Alibaba Group Holding’s e-commerce app AliExpress. The move has been taken amidst deadlock on the border with China.
