Friday, 04 September 2020_China has censured the latest move by India to ban numerous Chinese apps amid a persisting border conflict, further suggesting that New Delhi took the measure against Chinese hi-tech firms under US pressure.

China slams 'discriminatory' India app ban, blames US pressure"India has abused the concept of national security and adopted discriminatory restrictive measures against Chinese companies," China’s commerce ministry spokesperson Gao Feng declared during an online press briefing.

He further emphasized that Beijing strongly opposes the measure and called on New Delhi to "correct its wrong practices."

This is while China’s foreign ministry also implied on Thursday that India had imposed the ban on Chinese apps – including the hit game PUBG – under American pressure, as its spokesperson Hua Chunying warned against "short-sighted" participation in US restrictions against Chinese technology.

The development came after Beijing reacted strongly on Monday to earlier remarks by the Trump administrations’ National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien urging other countries to confront what he claimed to be the “challenges” of China and Russia and slamming Beijing for its political system and regional policies.

Insisting that Washington’s anti-China schemes were doomed to fail, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said, “For a while, driven by their zero-sum game mindset, Cold War mentality and personal gains, some US politicians have ignored the basic facts, continued to maliciously attack China's political system, wantonly slandered and smeared China, and sowed discord between China and other countries.”
