China 'will not sit idly by' on tech restrictions

TEHRAN, Apr. 03 (MNA) – Chinese President Xi Jinping told his US counterpart Joe Biden that Beijing "will not sit idly by" if the United States continues to suppress "China's high-tech development", state media reported.

President Joe Biden and Xi Jinping held talks in a telephone call on Tuesday about US trade restrictions on technology and Taiwan.

"If the United States insists on suppressing China's high-tech development and depriving China of its legitimate right to development, we will not sit idly by," Xi warned, according to Chinese state media.

Taiwan remains the “first red line not to be crossed,” Xi told Biden and emphasized that Beijing will not tolerate separatist activities by Taiwan’s independence forces as well as “exterior indulgence and support,” which alluded to Washington’s support for the island.

Xi told Biden that the two countries should adhere to the bottom line of “no clash, no confrontation” as one of the principles for this year.

“We should prioritize stability, not provoke troubles, not cross lines but maintain the overall stability of China-US relations,” Xi said.
