"The Chinese government has both the confidence and the ability to protect the legitimate interests of Chinese firms," the spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) Gao Feng said in response to fresh US sanctions on 13 Chinese entities.
A total of 10 Chinese firms and three individuals were sanctioned after allegedly engaging “in activities that warrant the imposition of measures pursuant to Section 3 of the Iran, North Korea (Democratic People's Republic of Korea), and Syria Nonproliferation Act,” according to a notice by the US Department of State on Wednesday.
"The best response towards US trade bullying of Chinese firms is to continue to grow and develop to provide goods with high qualities to the whole world,” Gao added.
