China's Ministry of Commerce said on Saturday it is resolutely opposed to the US move to block downloads of WeChat and TikTok apps.

In the absence of any evidence, the US has repeatedly used state power to suppress the two enterprises for unwarranted reasons, which seriously disrupted their normal business activities, undermined the confidence of international investors in the US investment environment and damaged the normal global economic and trade order, the MOC said in an online statement.

It urged the US to immediately stop bullying and safeguard international rules and order. "If the US is bent on having its own way, China will take necessary measures to resolutely protect the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies," the ministry added.
