Beijing, June 10
A relieved China on Thursday welcomed the US move to drop the Trump-era executive orders to ban its popular apps TikTok and WeChat, saying it was a “positive step in the right direction”. The US should treat Chinese companies fairly and refrain from politicising trade issues, state-run CGTN quoted commerce ministry spokesperson Gao Feng as saying.
