Stating that the USA has been pushing the boundaries of the concept of national security, abusing export control measures and restricting exports to China in order to maintain its hegemony for a while, Mao said, “Economic pressures and restrictions cannot stop China’s development, they only need to be innovative and self-sufficient in technology. It increases your stability.” said.
“The US is trying to block not only China but also many developing countries”
