BEIJING, March 8 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Wednesday that China always opposes unilateral sanctions imposed by foreign governments on Chinese enterprises.
Wang was responding to a question concerning the new tide of trade protectionism in the United States at a press conference on the sidelines of the annual legislative session.
He referred to the latest U.S. sanctions on Chinese telecom giant ZTE for violations of U.S. export controls.
China has always asked its businesses to conduct their overseas operations according to law, the minister said, adding that the Chinese authorities will continue to monitor the situation to see whether its enterprises have been treated fairly.
