U.S. sanctions disrupt international trade order: MOC
BEIJING, Feb 15, 2013 (Xinhua via COMTEX) --
The United States' sanctions on
Chinese enterprises have harmed international trade order, China's
Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said Wednesday.
Shen Danyang, an MOC spokesman, said that China strongly opposes
sanctions that have been imposed on Chinese military firms and
individuals based on U.S. domestic regulations and without any
evidence for them.
Unilateral moves of this kind have happened more than once, not
only harming Chinese enterprises, but disturbing international trade
order, Shen said.
The Chinese government demands that the U.S. corrects its
wrongdoing and create a sound environment for healthy economic ties,
The announcement came after a similar one on Monday by the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs that asked the U.S. to lift sanctions on
Chinese enterprises and individuals, including a leading Chinese
military defense company.
Poly Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of the state-owned China Poly
Group Corporation, voiced its opposition on Monday immediately after
the sanctions were announced.
It rejected accusations that the company has been involved in
business related to banned weapons with countries or regions that are
under United Nations Security Council sanctions.
