China Strongly Protests US Sanctions Against 12 Chinese Companies

TEHRAN (FNA)- China strongly protests US sanctions imposed against 12 Chinese companies and will lodge solemn representations with the United States, according to the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) on Thursday.

The United States has overstretched the concept of national security and imposed sanctions arbitrarily, MOC Spokesperson Shu Jueting told a press conference in response to questions regarding the US blacklisting of Chinese companies, Xinhua reported.

"This action seriously lacks a factual basis, and its procedures are very opaque," she said.

The new sanction list introduced by the US Department of Commerce does not conform to the consensus reached by the two heads of state, does not serve the interests of the two countries and undermines the safety of global industrial and supply chains, as well as global economic recovery, Shu said.
