Trump bans security transactions with the Chinese military

US President Donald Trump has passed an executive order banning security transactions and the buying and selling of equipment by the Chinese military. This implementing ordinance comes into force on January 11, 2021.

After approving the executive order on Thursday, Trump said, “This executive order prohibits security related transactions with Chinese Communist Army companies and the buying and selling of equipment.”

The US President said, “I have authorized the Treasury Secretary to take appropriate action after consulting with the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of State, the Director of National Intelligence and the heads of other important departments.” He will take the necessary steps and implement this implementing regulation. “”

Significantly, there is tension between the two countries due to the increasing activities of the Chinese army in the South China Sea. China has accused the US of increasing its military activities in the South China Sea. There is also a confrontation between China and America regarding Taiwan.

It is noteworthy that a few months ago the US blacklisted 24 companies in China and said that these companies were helping the Chinese Communist Party build an artificial island in the South China Sea.
