The Foreign Ministry said that they “will take all necessary measures to firmly defend rights of Chinese companies.”
In the last hour, the Commerce Ministry also came out with some comments, citing
US’ entity list not helpful for US-China relations.

This comes after the US added 12 Chinese companies to its trade blacklist on Wednesday, citing national security and foreign policy concerns.

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 futures add 0.31% on the day, currently trading at 4,715.
