Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said that the country calls on the U.S. to lift all sanctions on its enterprises.
Zhao Lijain, the Chinese Foreign Ministry´s spokesman, said that the Asian country rejects the sanctions imposed on its five national companies included on a blacklist for allegedly cooperating with the Russian military, demanding the lifting of them.
The Chinese spokesman said that Beijing had issued a complaint with the U.S. representatives after the measures imposed on Connec Electronic Ltd., World Jetta, Logistics Limited, King Pai Technology Co., Ltd., And Winninc Electronic were publicly released.
Zhao said bilateral cooperation with Russia has its basis on equality and respect. He also noted that the Russia-China relationship does not allow the interference of a third party.
