China Threats India : Correct your wrongdoing, revoke ban on WeChat, other apps. It was deliberate

The State

Calling India’s ban on Chinese app a “deliberate interference”, China said such economic sanctions against Chinese companies will not serve India’s interests. It added that Beijing will do everything to protect Chinese companies.

hina today protested against India’s recent decision to ban a plethora of Chinese apps and warned that India should “correct its wrongdoing”. China said the ban was a “deliberate interference” and it will take “all necessary measures” to protect the interest of Chinese businesses.

This comes in the wake of India’s decision to ban certain apps that belong to Chinese companies and were allegedly involved in activities detrimental to India’s national interest.

In the latest move, India has banned 47 more apps operating as clones of the 59 Chinese apps, including TikTok, that were banned last month. In all, over 250 Chinese apps are being monitored by the government, and each that poses a threat is being picked and thrown out.

Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy, Counselor Ji Rong in a statement said the matter of “WeChat” app being banned has been taken up with the Indian side.

“We have noted the relevant reports. On June 29, the Indian government banned 59 mobile apps with Chinese background including WeChat, which severely damaged the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies. The Chinese side has lodged solemn representation to the Indian side and asked the Indian side to correct its wrongdoings,” she said.

The list of the 47 applications banned by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology is yet to be released.

These 47 banned app clones include TikTok Lite, Helo Lite, SHAREit Lite, BIGO LIVE Lite, and VFY Lite, news agency ANI reported.

While India is dealing with Chinese cloned apps, the Chinese embassy in New Delhi has called for abiding by international rules and ethical practices.ADVERTISEMENT

The Chinese Counselor said, “I want to reiterate that the Chinese government consistently asks Chinese enterprises to abide by international rules and local laws and regulations when conducting external cooperation. The Indian government has the responsibility to protect the legitimate rights and interests of international investors in India, including Chinese businesses, in accordance with market principles.”

Calling India’s moves “deliberate interference”, China said such economic sanctions against Chinese companies will not serve India’s interests. It added that Beijing will do everything to protect Chinese companies.

“Practical cooperation between China and India is mutually beneficial. Deliberate interference in such cooperation will not serve the interests of the Indian side. China will also take necessary measures to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies,” Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy, Counselor Ji Rong said.

Meanwhile, India has also prepared a list of over 250 Chinese apps, including those linked to Alibaba, that it will examine for any user privacy or national security violations, government sources said. The list also includes Tencent-backed gaming app PUBG.

Some top gaming Chinese applications are also expected to be banned in the new list that is being drawn up, sources said. The Chinese applications that are being reviewed have allegedly been sharing data with the Chinese agencies.
