China: India's move to ban 59 apps violates WTO rules

Jun 30, 2020 21:54 IST

China said on Tuesday that India’s move to ban 59 Chinese mobile apps could be a breach of World Trade Organisation rules, urging New Delhi to create an open and fair business environment. A spokesperson at the Chinese embassy in New Delhi said, India’s measure selectively and discriminatorily aims at certain Chinese apps on ambiguous and far-fetched grounds, runs against fair and transparent procedure requirements, abuses national security exceptions and possibly violates WTO rules. India on Monday banned the apps, its strongest move against China in the digital space since tension erupted between the two countries along the LAC earlier this month.
