China’s Ministry of Commerce said Thursday that China is ready to take “necessary measures” to defend Chinese enterprise’s legal interests, following a US ban on China’s telecommunication giant ZTE.
“The US' move has triggered concerns for the investment environment in the US,” said Gao Feng, spokesperson for the Ministry of Commerce. “The move targets China, but eventually it will hurt itself and sway the confidence of trade and investment in the United States.”
The commerce ministry added that China will impose temporary anti-dumping measures against halogenated butyl rubber imported from the US, the EU and Singapore starting Friday.
