Tiktok, a New York Times reporter, said that the CIA’s recent assessment report submitted to the White House said there was no evidence that Chinese intelligence agencies intercepted the TikTok data or used it to invade the mobile phone. In addition, Castro, vice president of the information technology and innovation foundation of the US think tank, said that only a software application belongs to China’s China enterprises. There is no security reason. The accusation of security risk should be supported by solid evidence rather than insinuation without evidence. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Zakharova said recently on the US crackdown on tiktok that this is another example of unfair business competition in the United States, which violates WTO rules. What is China’s comment on this?
Zhao Lijian said that China firmly opposes the US side’s violation of market principles and WTO rules, generalizing the concept of national security, abusing state power, and unreasonably suppressing non-U.S. enterprises such as tiktok. This kind of naked bullying and political manipulation has long been seen through by the United States and the international community, and has been condemned by the international community and people from all walks of life. This is their due end. We urge the US side to correct its hysterical wrong practices, abide by market principles and WTO rules, and stop unreasonable repression and discriminatory restrictions on relevant enterprises.
