China has noticed that the U.S. decision to include some Chinese companies and individuals on its specially designated nationals list under the pretext of their alleged connections with Iran's unmanned aerial vehicles and military aircraft programs. China firmly opposes such actions, said the ministry's spokesperson in the statement.
