A ban on numerous Chinese apps imposed by the United States and India violated World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules, an official at the institution has said as quoted by the South China Morning Post this week.
According to an unnamed Geneva trade official at the event, Beijing said the bans restricted "cross-border trading services" and harmed the global "multilateral trading system".
The meeting took place at the Council for Trade in Services meeting on Friday and was attended by US, Indian and Chinese delegates.
US officials have routinely accused the apps of collecting data for the Chinese Communist Party and conducting cyberespionage, which Beijing and ByteDance execs have sharply and repeatedly denied.
India followed in June with similar measures after banning over 118 Chinese apps, including Tencent's WeChat, PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG) and Baidu Maps following military clashes at the Himalayan border.
According to New Delhi, the apps were allegedly stealing and "surreptitiously" sending user data to servers outside of India, the SCMP wrote.
But Beijing said at the meeting there was no evidence to support claims from Washington and New Delhi, adding that data collection for ByteDance's popular video sharing app was standard practise for thousands of apps globally, it added.
The meeting comes days before reports revealed that China was mulling an antitrust probe on US tech giant Google for reportedly monopolising the tech market and blocking access to key technologies amid the ongoing US trade war on China.
The accusations come after the Menlo Park, California-based firm blocked access to its mobile services platform to devices from Huawei Technologies, namely after Trump blacklisted the latter along with dozens of Chinese tech companies in May last year, as well as restricting the Shenzhen-based company's access to US chipmakers without a licence for doing business.
