China urged the United States on Tuesday to stop what it called erroneous actions after the US ordered restrictions on Chinese and Russian firms with military ties from buying US goods.

The United States has been abusing the concept of national security in order to crack down on foreign companies, foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a news briefing in Beijing.

The Trump administration on Monday published a list of Chinese and Russian companies with alleged military ties that restrict them from buying a wide range of US goods and technology.
