Washington sanctions Chinese company Beijing demands lifting of sanctions

China on Monday asked Washington to lift the ban on technology exports imposed on some Chinese companies. The United States announced the ban when the conflict between the two countries on the issue of technology, security and human rights continues to deteriorate.

Citizens and scholars in China continue to criticize that the abuse of artificial intelligence technology by the authorities has severely violated or even destroyed the basic civil and human rights of the Chinese. However, the CCP ’s response to these criticisms is to block and ignore them.
