[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]China on Tuesday urged the U.S to correct its mistake and lift all illegal sanctions, after Washington imposed Venezuela-related sanctions targeting a Chinese firm.
China supports Venezuelan efforts to defend its sovereignty and is opposed to abusing international sanctions, foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a regular briefing.
China will take necessary measures to safeguard companies’ rights and interests, Hua said.
The U.S imposed sanctions on Monday on Chinese firm, China National Electronics Import & Export Corporation (CEIEC), accusing it of supporting Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s efforts to undermine democracy. (Reuters)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
