MNI BRIEF: China's MOFCOM Says U.S. Shouldn't Weaponise Trade
The US should immediately lift its ban on Chinese communication equipment and stop "weaponising" trade, a MOFCOM spokesperson said during a press conference on Thursday.
The spokesperson said the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's ban on the sale and import of new communications equipment from Huawei and four other Chinese companies was also damaging for American consumers.
“China will take necessary measures to resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises” the spokesperson said.
