"We urge the United States to stop making unfounded guesses and exerting unreasonable pressure on Chinese companies, provide fair investment conditions for Chinese companies, commit more to strengthening mutual trust and cooperation," Lu Kang, the ministry's spokesman, said at the briefing, commenting on the NTIA recommendations.
The spokesman also called on the US side to abandon the mindset of the "cold war and the outdated concept of risky action."
In recent months, Beijing and Washington have been engaged in tense trade disputes. The sides seemed to settle the issue of Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs by negotiating to cut China-US trade imbalance in mid-May.
However, earlier in June, the US president threatened to impose additional tariffs on Chinese goods, citing Beijing's "irrational behavior." China has called Trump's latest threats "an act of extreme pressure and blackmail."
