Chinese reaction

representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China Mao Ningaccused Australia of “discriminating and cracking down on Chinese companies” and called for a “fair and non-discriminatory environment” for them.

Similar measures have been taken in USA And Great Britainwhich prohibited the installation of Chinese-made cameras at secret facilities.
