On May 22, 2019 local time, on the sidelines of the meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Bishkek, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi told the press upon request that the use of state power of the United States (US) to groundlessly suppress Huawei, a Chinese private enterprise, is typical economic bullying.
Wang Yi stated that now some people in the US do not want China to have legitimate development rights and try to impede China's development. Without any solid evidence, the use of state power of the US to groundlessly suppress Huawei, a Chinese private enterprise, is typical economic bullying. As a Chinese saying goes, "A just cause enjoys abundant support while an unjust one finds little support." The self-claimed supremacy practice of the US side will gain no acknowledgement or support in the international community.
Wang Yi said that the meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the SCO adopted a press communiqué, in which all parties jointly opposed any form of unilateralism and trade protectionism. All parties also stressed in particular that they oppose discriminatory practices against mutually beneficial international cooperation in digital economy and communication technology under any pretext.
