India's ban on TikTok and other Chinese apps 'selective, against WTO rules': China
- India on Monday banned 59 Chinese apps, including top social media platforms such as TikTok, Helo and WeChat
- 'The ban goes against the general trend of international trade and e-commerce,' says Ji Rong, spokesperson of Chinese Embassy in India
A day after India banned 59 Chinese mobile applications, China "firmly opposed" the measure, calling it "violation of World Trade Organisation rules." "India’s measure, selectively and discriminatory aims at certain Chinese apps on ambiguous and far-fetched grounds, runs against fair and transparent procedure requirements, abuses national security exceptions,& suspects of violating WTO rules," said Ji Rong, spokesperson of Chinese Embassy in India.
