HONG KONG  — The United States should immediately stop “unreasonable suppression” of Chinese companies and treat them fairly, China’s commerce ministry said on Friday.

A U.S. regulator earlier revoked China Unicom’s authorization to operate in the U.S. over national security concerns.

China would resolutely safeguard legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises, the ministry said in a statement on its website.

The order requires China Unicom Americas to end domestic interstate and international telecommunications services in the United States within 60 days.
