China has firmly opposed Indian government’s move to block 118 Chinese mobile applications. Criticising India’s action, commerce ministry spokesman Gao Feng said, “Indian actions violate the legal interests of Chinese investors and services providers and China asks India to correct its mistakes.”, according to news agency Reuters.
India on Wednesday banned another 118 mostly Chinese mobile apps including Tencent Holdings Ltd’s popular videogame PUBG, citing data security concerns.
The list of 118 mostly Chinese apps also includes applications from Baidu and Xiaomi’s ShareSave. The ban was announced a day after a senior Indian official said troops were deployed on four strategic hilltops after what Delhi called an attempted Chinese incursion along a disputed Himalayan border.
