Beijing: China appealed to other governments to treat its companies fairly after Britain and New Zealand joined the United States in restricting use of TikTok. The restriction was imposed due to fears that the Chinese-owned short video service might be a security risk. “We call on the countries concerned to recognize the objective facts, effectively respect the market economy” and provide “a non-discriminatory environment” for all companies, said foreign ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin.
