US adds two dozen Chinese groups to trade blacklist
Targeted companies include chipmakers accused of assisting China’s military and surveillance tech exporters
Washington has put 28 Chinese groups on a trade blacklist for allegedly breaching US sanctions by sending technology for nuclear and missile programmes to third countries or procuring banned products for China’s military.
The commerce department placed the groups on its “entity list”, which in effect prohibits US companies from supplying them with technology that is produced in America.
Some of the companies were blacklisted for allegedly supporting Russia’s war effort in Ukraine and for providing technology to an Iranian entity previously targeted by US sanctions.
