MIIT asks US govt to rescind decision against Chinese telecom companies

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, China's top industry regulator, urged the US side on Thursday to withdraw its unfair decisions against two Chinese telecom companies.

The comments came after Chinese telecom company Pacific Networks Corp and its wholly owned subsidiary ComNet (USA) LLC on Wednesday received an order from the US Federal Communications Commission that revoked their authority to provide relevant telecom services in the US.

The ministry said in a statement that it strongly opposes such decision and urged the FCC to treat Chinese telecommunications companies fairly and in a nondiscriminatory way.

"China will continue taking necessary measures to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies," MIIT said.

According to the ministry, Pacific Networks Corp and ComNet (USA) LLC have been operating in the US for several years. They have always abided by US laws and regulations, and provided high-quality services to many customers in the US in accordance with commercial principles.

The MIIT said the FCC revoked their section 214 authority without listing any facts to support the alleged violations of the laws. It is an unreasonable suppression of Chinese companies by further overgeneralizing the national security concept and abusing state power.

Such practices seriously damaged the US business environment and harmed the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies and global consumers, including US users, the ministry added.
