 BEIJING, 06 January 2021, (TON): China said on Wednesday it would take necessary measures to safeguard the legitimate rights of companies after Washington signed an order banning US transactions with eight Chinese apps.

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying was speaking at a regular news briefing.

Trump on Tuesday signed an executive order banning transactions with eight Chinese software applications, including Ant Group’s Alipay mobile payment app, the White House said, escalating tensions with Beijing two weeks before President-elect Joe Biden takes office.

Tensions between the two countries have been escalated since early last year when both countries started sanctioning each other entities and officials in retaliation.
