The Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of China Le Yucheng said About it in an interview the Internet-to the edition "Huanchaca."

"The American government used the principle of "presumption of guilt" against TikTok without providing any irrefutable evidence, "Le Yucheng was quoted as saying on Wednesday. He noted that the white house's attempts to restrict the activities of TikTok and force the sale of this social network to American companies represent " bandit logic and robbery in broad daylight." Le Yucheng recalled that similar measures were taken by Washington against the Chinese company Huawei.

"What is the fault of TikTok? This social network has provided Americans with a platform for entertainment, demonstration of talents and communication, TikTok has nothing to do with national security, - said the Chinese diplomat. - Where are the free market, competitive neutrality, and the rule of law spirit that the United States has always advertised?"
