Chinese diplomats demanded that the United States stop putting pressure on other states, hiding behind “national security interests”.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said this:
Islamists stormed a prison in Afghanistan – fighting continues on the second day
«In any political situation, the United States puts pressure on foreign enterprises and threatens them with sanctions. This goes against the principles of a market economy. This is a prime example of a policy of double standards and a violation of such principles of the World Trade Organization as openness, transparency and non-discrimination. China expresses strong protest in this regard».
