(ECNS) -- China is the biggest semiconductor market in the world, so it is in no party's interest to push for decoupling from China, sever supply chains and disrupt the market, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning said on Thursday at a news conference.
She pointed out that to maintain its hegemony, the US has for some time been overstretching the concept of national security, abusing export control measures and limiting exports to China. It is not only China that the US is trying to contain and bring down, but also a large number of developing countries, she added.
The spokeswoman stressed that the US is taking away their right to scientific and technological progress and development that they deserve and keeping them at the lower end of industrial chains. Such selfish and bullying practices in science and technology are unfair and inconsistent with economic and trade rules, she said.
They will destabilize the global industrial and supply chains, hamper global economic development and ultimately backfire on the US itself, she added.
China is committed to high-level opening up, she said.
She pointed out China is ready to achieve common development with all other countries by sharing opportunities and will firmly defend its lawful rights and interests.
"Containment and suppression cannot hold back China's development. Instead, it will only strengthen China's resolve and capability to pursue self-reliance and technological innovation," she added.
