FM: US pressure on Chinese companies 'unreasonable'

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian kicked up a row on Monday over the United States' latest decision to ban imports of telecom equipment and services from vendors that pose a threat to the country's security, more specifically, Huawei Technologies Co. and ZTE Corporation.

"These US actions are yet another example of the generalization of the concept of national security, the abuse of state power, and the application of unreasonable pressure on Chinese companies," the spokesman shared during a press briefing.

Zhao underlined that Beijing "strongly opposes" such measures, adding that the country will protect its interests.
