Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Liu Jianchao's Comment on the US Sanctions on Chinese Companies

2007-01-09

Q: US State Department announces sanctions against three Chinese companies last week for their suspected involvement in sales of embargoed weapons to relevant countries. What comment does China have?

A: The Chinese Government consistently adopts a serious and responsible attitude on preventing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, firmly opposes any proliferation in any form and prohibits any company or individual to engage in proliferation.

It is unreasonable for the American Government to invoke its domestic law to sanction on Chinese companies without providing any evidence. We express resolute opposition and strongly urge the US to correct its wrong practice.
