Actually, on the contrary, we want American companies to enrich by entering into deals there and creating jobs. Here".
He added: "At the same time, we must ensure that our companies do not enter into contracts that enhance our competitors' army or facilitate its suppression of some areas of the country."
He continued: "We must make sure that American technology does not fuel a strict monitoring state," stressing that "American principles for prosperity should not be sacrificed."
Pompeo called on US companies to "ask just a few questions: What is it about? What is the true connection between the risks that may occur and the benefits we expect from these deals in China?", According to "AFP."
