Beijing stands strongly against the United States' ban of the Chinese technology companies ByteDance Ltd. and Tencent Holdings Ltd., China Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin (pictured) said on Friday.

TikTok and WeChat, subsidiaries of ByteDance Ltd. and Tencent Ltd, conduct their business activities in the US in accordance with the country's regulations, Wang stressed, claiming that Washington is using national security as an excuse.

The statement from the Asian country's foreign ministry comes after Donald Trump's decision to disallow the US companies to do business with ByteDance, the owner of TikTok, and Tencent, the parent company of WeChat.
