Counselor Fan Rong, spokesman of the Chinese Embassy in India, answered reporters’ questions on India’s once again banning mobile phone applications with Chinese backgrounds.
Q: On November 24, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology of India issued an announcement announcing the banning of 43 mobile phone applications with Chinese backgrounds such as AliExpress and Dingding. What’s your comment on this?
A: China firmly opposes India’s repeated banning of mobile phone applications with Chinese backgrounds under the pretext of “national security”. The Chinese government has always required Chinese enterprises to abide by international rules, operate legally and in accordance with the regulations, and respect public order and good customs.
China-Indian economic and trade relations
It hopes that India can provide a fair, just and non-discriminatory business environment for market subjects in India, including China, to invest and operate in India, and correct this discriminatory practice that violates WTO rules.
China and India do not pose a threat to each other and are opportunities for each other’s development. On the basis of dialogue and consultation, the two sides should return China-Indian economic and trade relations to the right path that benefits the people of the two countries and has mutual benefit and win-win results.
