India once again announced the ban on 43 Chinese APPs. Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Serious concern
On November 25, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian presided over a regular press conference. A reporter asked about India’s announcement of banning measures for 43 mobile applications from China.
Zhao Lijian said that China expressed serious concern about the relevant statement of India. A spokesman for the Chinese Embassy in India has made a statement in this regard.
Since June this year, India has banned mobile phone applications with Chinese backgrounds on the pretext of so-called safeguarding national security for four consecutive times.
The relevant practices are obviously contrary to market principles and WTO rules, and seriously harm the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises. China firmly opposes this.
Zhao Lijian pointed out that the Chinese government has always required Chinese enterprises to carry out foreign cooperation on the basis of complying with international rules and local laws and regulations.
The Indian government has the responsibility to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of international investors, including Chinese enterprises, in accordance with market principles. The essence of Sino-India economic and trade cooperation is mutually beneficial and win-win. India should immediately correct this discriminatory practice and avoid causing greater harm to bilateral cooperation.
