 118 new apps banned in India

It is worth noting that before the Indian government announced this latest move, senior colonel Zhang Shuiyuan, spokesman for the Western Theater of China, made a speech on the border situation between China and India on August 31. He pointed out that on August 31, the Indian army destroyed the consensus reached in the multi-level talks between the two sides and illegally crossed the border again on the Hunan bank of Bangong and near the reqin pass, openly provoking and causing tension on the border. Indias move has seriously violated Chinas territorial sovereignty, seriously damaged the peace and stability in the border areas between China and India, and betrayed its promise and betrayed its promise. China strongly opposes this. We solemnly demand that the Indian side immediately withdraw its forces illegally crossing the line, strictly control and restrict the front-line forces, earnestly abide by its commitments, and avoid further escalation of the situation. The Chinese army is taking necessary measures and will pay close attention to the development of the situation and resolutely safeguard Chinas territorial sovereignty and peace and stability in the border areas.

In response to Indias move, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian previously said that the Chinese government has always asked Chinese enterprises to carry out foreign cooperation on the basis of complying with international rules and local laws and regulations. The Indian government is responsible for safeguarding the legitimate rights and interests of international investors, including Chinese enterprises, in accordance with market principles. The cooperation between China and India in the practical field is mutually beneficial and win-win. This kind of cooperation pattern is artificially damaged, which is not in line with Indias own interests.

In the related reports of ET and India today and other local media, Tencents chicken eating (survival of the Jedi) were the primary targets. In fact, the game is popular among Indian teenagers.
