On August 9, 2019, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying answered reportersquestions. Below are some transcripts.
Q: According to people familiar with the situation, after China said it would stop buying American agricultural products, the US delayed the decision of American enterprises and Huawei to restart business license. Whats your comment on this?
A: I dont understand what you said about the U.S. decision. I suggest you check with the U.S. side. I would like to emphasize that:
The United States has used its national power to impose unprovoked sanctions and suppress Chinese enterprises, seriously harming the national image and self-interest of the United States, and even more seriously undermining the global industrial chain and supply chain. It has been and will continue to be widely opposed and resisted by all countries in the world. We note that American companies such as Qualcomm, Intel and Meguiar have asked the U.S. government to make timely decisions on licensing issues. U.S. Commerce Secretary Ross said on July 30 that more than 50 applications for Huaweis sales license had been received, and the number is expected to increase. I think the attitude of the business community is clear. The United States Government has also made commitments on relevant issues.
We urge the US side to stop unreasonable repression and sanctions against Chinese enterprises such as Huawei and treat Chinese enterprises in a fair, fair and non-discriminatory manner. We urge the US side to abandon illusions and show sincerity in a responsible attitude towards the American people, Sino-US relations and the world economy, and to work with China to resolve their concerns and differences through consultation on the basis of equality and mutual respect.
