China will resolutely object if the United States coerces its allies to restrict investment in China, the country's Ministry of Commerce said on Thursday.

Shu Jueting, a spokesperson with the ministry, made the statements at a press briefing.

Shu said such a move runs counter to the market economy and the principle of fair competition, affects enterprises' normal business decisions, undermines the international economic and trade order, and disrupts the stability of global industrial and supply chains.

China will take resolute steps to oppose such acts if the news about the forced restrictions on investing in China is true, she said, adding that China will remain steadfast in advancing high-level opening-up and welcome enterprises from all countries to invest in China and share development opportunities.
