China urged the US to immediately stop its erroneous actions and impartially treat foreign companies, including Chinese companies, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Wang Wenbin said at a Tuesday press conference.
The US Department of Commerce last Friday put 58 entities on its "entity list," most of which are Chinese companies, universities and individuals.
For some time, the US has mobilized its national power, generalized the concept of national security, abused measures, including export controls and suppressed foreign companies in various areas, which severely harms the benefit of people from both foreign countries and the US, Wang said.
China will take all necessary measures to protect the legitimate interests of Chinese companies, Wang said.
