China opposes action by the United States to abuse the concept of national security in an effort to crack down on normal operations by Chinese communication enterprises, the Ministry of Commerce said on Thursday.

"The US government is ignoring the basic rules of international economics and trade and disturbing the normal market order. And it also poses a threat to the safety and stability of the global information and communications industrial and supply chain," the ministry's spokesman Gao Feng told a news conference in Beijing.

Gao's comments came after the US Commerce Department issued subpoenas for multiple Chinese enterprises that provide information and communications technology and services in the US as part of a review into potential national security risks.

China has repeatedly reiterated that the prosperity of the global digital economy is built on an open, efficient and reliable information and communications supply chain, Gao said.

According to Gao, China hopes the US side will face up to the US semiconductor business community's concern over the political measures to suppress Chinese enterprises.

"We hope the US government will follow the rules of the market and take a rational, objective and fair attitude toward Chinese enterprises and avoid politicizing supply chain security issues," Gao said. "China has the determination and capability to resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises."
