BEIJING, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- The United States' sanctions on Chinese enterprises have harmed international trade order, China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said Wednesday.
Shen Danyang, an MOC spokesman, said that China strongly opposes sanctions that have been imposed on Chinese military firms and individuals based on U.S. domestic regulations and without any evidence for them.
Unilateral moves of this kind have happened more than once, not only harming Chinese enterprises, but disturbing international trade order, Shen said.
The Chinese government demands that the U.S. corrects its wrongdoing and create a sound environment for healthy economic ties, he added.
The announcement came after a similar one on Monday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that asked the U.S. to lift sanctions on Chinese enterprises and individuals, including a leading Chinese military defense company.
Poly Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of the state-owned China Poly Group Corporation, voiced its opposition on Monday immediately after the sanctions were announced.
It rejected accusations that the company has been involved in business related to banned weapons with countries or regions that are under United Nations Security Council sanctions.
BEIJING, Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- Poly Technologies Inc., a leading defense company in China, on Monday voiced strong objection to U.S. sanctions on the firm and urged immediate corrections.
In a statement released right after the sanctions were announced on Monday, the firm said that it is absolutely groundless and unreasonable that the United States imposed the sanctions according to its own laws or regulations. Full story
