Washington moves to block China Mobile from US market

AFP

The US Commerce Department recommended against approval of China Mobile’s seven year old application to enter the domestic market on Monday, citing national security concerns, reports AFP from Washington.

The move marked the latest blast from the US under President Donald Trump in its growing trade dispute with China.

US tariffs against billions of dollars worth of Chinese goods are set to kick in on Friday and China has vowed to retaliate.

“After significant engagement with China Mobile, concerns about increased risks to US law enforcement and national security interests were unable to be resolved,” Commerce Department assistant secretary David Redl said in a Monday statement.

He added the department’s National Telecommu-nications and Information Administration recommended the Federal Communi-cations Commission turn down China Mobile’s application to offer voice traffic between the US and other countries.

The Trump administration has also moved to punish Chinese telecoms firm ZTE, banning US companies from selling crucial hardware and software components to the company for seven years.
