Xinhua International News Review: say “no” to economic bullying with legal weapons

Beijing (Aug. 25) tiktok, an Internet technology company based in Los Angeles, filed an indictment in a Federal District Court on August 24, local time, formally accusing the US government of violating an administrative order related to byte skipping issued by the US government. Tiktok took up the legal weapon to say “no” to the US bullying line in order to safeguard its legitimate rights and interests, which is a just act worthy of affirmation. Although tiktok fully complies with the U.S. management regulations, tiktok still fails to evade the US government’s usurpation under the pretext of “damaging the national security interests of the United States”. Not long ago, U.S. President trump signed an executive order saying that tiktok posed a threat to the national security of the United States, and would prohibit any U.S. individual or entity from conducting any transactions with tiktok and its parent company byte hopping after 45 days. In an indictment filed with the Federal District Court for the Central District of California, tiktok alleges that the procedure for issuing the executive order is illegal and undermines the company’s constitutional rights; the executive order states that it is actually abusing the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. The U.S. government has presumed tiktok’s guilt and hanged tiktok by arbitrary means without any concrete evidence. This fully proves that some American politicians have openly torn off the cover of “free market” and “fair competition”, openly suppressed the rule of law with political self-interest, and pursued the naked “digital gunboat” Policy “and unscrupulously pursue” digital hegemony “. Russian political analyst trofmchuk exclaimed that the forcible acquisition of tiktok was blatant extortion and embezzlement of other people’s property. In fact, the U.S. government’s attack on Chinese enterprises is like a double-edged sword, which can hurt people and hurt themselves at the same time. The French “Le Monde” reported that the US government’s crackdown on Chinese enterprises has worried many American enterprises developing in China, and the sanctions may affect their business contacts with these Chinese enterprises. Tiktok’s counterattack against the US government’s bullying by legal means is a just act of Chinese enterprises to safeguard their own legitimate rights, and it is also a powerful response to the US side’s abuse of state power and the destruction of the free market. A spokesman for China’s foreign ministry said that China supports relevant enterprises to take legal weapons to safeguard their legitimate rights and interests, and will continue to take all necessary measures to resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises. It is reasonable for the international community to see more clearly the hegemonic actions of the US government by saying “no” to the path of abuse of power and hegemony in the name of law. The United States boasts that it is a country ruled by law. Will the United States really base itself on facts and take law as the criterion, or will it continue to be unreasonable, so that the world can see more clearly the robberies committed by Americans.
