China announced on the 21st that the products sold by the US chip manufacturer Micron in China had not passed the cybersecurity review. In this regard, Chinese Assistant Foreign Minister and spokesperson Hua Chunying refuted on Twitter on the evening of the 24th, saying, “The United States might as well say that only the United States can talk about national security, and other countries cannot.”

On the same day, Hua Chunying shared on Twitter a video of a US State Department spokesperson answering questions about “Micron”, so “double-standard” that even American reporters laughed.
The video shows that Matthew Miller, the spokesperson of the US State Department, answered a question about “Micron’s products sold in China have not passed the network security review” at a press conference on the 22nd.
US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller was “tortured sharply” by reporters.
In the video, the reporter asked, “If you ban or seek to ban a Chinese company from doing business here or overseas, why don’t they (the Chinese) be allowed to do the same?”
Associated Press senior reporter Matthew Lee (Matthew Lee) asked questions about Micron.
In response, Miller replied, “What I will say is that we have made it clear that we are motivated by concerns about Huawei and the use of Huawei technology. This is a national security concern.” The reporter then asked: “So can China also have national security concerns?” In response, Miller claimed, “Yes, but as I said, they (China) have made it clear that they are open to business and will There is a transparent…” When he said this, the reporter shot back “but you also made it clear that you were open to business” and laughed.
Hua Chunying said in the accompanying text of the video, “The United States accuses China of taking actions against Micron as ‘economic coercion’. This is just another narrative trap. What about Huawei and more than 1,000 other Chinese companies that have been sanctioned by the United States? The United States is not as good as Say, only the US can talk about national security, other countries can’t…”
China will bar operators of critical information infrastructure from buying products from U.S. chipmaker Micron after it failed a cybersecurity review to sell products in China. The US State Department claimed on the 22nd that it expressed “serious concerns” about China’s actions and was in contact with the Chinese government on the matter. “Global Times” quoted Chinese scholars who pointed out that talking about “fairness and freedom” is good for the United States, and “abuse of state power” is bad for the United States.
The United States has smeared China many times before and expressed concern about the so-called “economic coercion” by China, and China has also expressed its position many times. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said at a press conference on the 24th that the relevant Chinese authorities’ cybersecurity review of Micron’s products sold in China was implemented in accordance with the law, and the decision was made based on facts. China’s cyber security review does not target specific countries or regions, and does not exclude technologies and products from any country. She also said that in contrast, the United States put more than 1,200 Chinese companies and individuals on various lists and imposed various restrictions under the pretext of national security without any factual basis. This is economic coercion, which is unacceptable.
