NEW DELHI (Reuters) – China said on Wednesday that the Indian government‘s decision to maintain the ban on 59 Chinese apps was a violation of the World Trade Organization’s fair business rules and would hurt Chinese companies. The ban dates from last year, when political tension among neighbors increased over their disputed border. This month, the Indian government decided to keep banning TikTok and other apps. “We urge the Indian side to immediately correct its discriminatory measures and avoid causing further damage to the bilateral cooperation,” Chinese embassy spokesman Ji Rong said in a statement.
