BEIJING, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- Citing so-called national security concerns, Washington announced Thursday an upcoming ban on dealings with the Chinese owners of popular apps TikTok and WeChat, while on the same day, it reimposed a 10-percent tariff on Canadian aluminum exports into the United States.
"If we have a close look at the history of our relations since President (Richard) Nixons visit to China, or since Dr. (Henry) Kissinger visit to China, several things are quite clear," said the ambassador.
China has valued peace and cooperation since ancient times, and always opposes dangerous acts to divide the world along ideological lines, said Wang.
Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland called the U.S. tariff decision on national security grounds "unnecessary, unwarranted and entirely unacceptable." "That is a ludicrous notion," she said.
