China Urges US to Drop Sanctions       08/23 06:07

   China on Wednesday urged the U.S. to withdraw new sanctions it imposed on 
Chinese companies that Washington says are supporting North Korea as it carries 
out increasingly ambitious missile tests.

   BEIJING (AP) -- China on Wednesday urged the U.S. to withdraw new sanctions 
it imposed on Chinese companies that Washington says are supporting North Korea 
as it carries out increasingly ambitious missile tests.

   On Tuesday, the Trump administration imposed sanctions on 16 mainly Chinese 
and Russian companies and people for assisting North Korea's nuclear and 
ballistic missile programs and helping it to make money to support those 
programs.

   Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters at a 
regular briefing that China opposes unilateral sanctions and "the long-arm 
jurisdiction taken" by the U.S. against Chinese entities and individuals.

   Among those sanctioned are six Chinese companies, including three coal 
companies.

   Hua said Chinese authorities will follow their own regulations and laws to 
investigate and punish if necessary the companies in question.

   China has been "earnestly and comprehensively" implementing U.N. Security 
Council sanctions on North Korea, and "our efforts are there for all to see," 
Hua said. Washington says its own sanctions are intended to complement the U.N. 
ones, including the latest ones which were imposed after North Korea tested two 
intercontinental ballistic missiles last month that may be able to reach parts 
of the U.S.
