Sorry, let the US down! The Ministry of Commerce announces heavy news, the sword cuts off the long-arm jurisdiction of the United States
For a period of time, the Trump government, for political purposes, ignored international law and Xinjiang, Taiwan and other issues related to China’s core interests provoked China and grossly interfered in China’s internal affairs. What is even more contemptible is that the United States has repeatedly abused domestic laws and practiced”long-arm jurisdiction”, and wantonly imposed so-called”sanctions” on Chinese entities and individuals. All sorts of evil deeds by the United States have exposed its bully and double standards.
