Upset on App Ban, China Urges India to Re-establish Normal Trade Relations

New Delhi: Upset by India’s most recent ban on forty-three Chinese mobile applications, China on Wednesday urged the government to re-establish the trade relations for mutual benefit.

An official statement issued by the Chinese embassy in New Delhi said: “China and India are the opportunities of development to each other rather than threats. The two sides should bring bilateral economic and trade relations back to the correct path for mutual benefit and win-win results on the basis of dialogue and negotiation.”

The embassy was replying to a media query related to the Indian government’s decision to block the utilization of forty-three mobile applications with Chinese background including DingTalk, AliExpress, and so forth

The statement said that the Chinese Communist Party regime firmly opposes the Indian side’s repeated use of national security as an excuse to prohibit some mobile applications with a Chinese background.

The embassy furthermore said that the Chinese government has “always required overseas Chinese companies to abide by international rules, operate in compliance with laws and regulations and conform to public order and good morals.”

The spokesperson of the embassy Ji Rong said that China hoped India provides a fair, non-discriminatory and impartial business environment for all market players from various countries including China, and rectify the discriminatory practices violating WTO rules.

The statement comes when India and China continue to remain locked in a stand-off along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh since June. India has taken many diplomatic steps in retaliation to Chinese aggression, including prohibiting of Chinese apps over data security issues.

In the interim, the eighth round of discussions of the India-China senior military commanders was conducted in Chushulon on November 6 to guarantee total disengagement and full rebuilding of peace and tranquillity over the LAC in the Western Sector. The two countries have consented continue their dialogue and communication through military and diplomatic channels.
